The Mac has always had a difficult time with the idea of operating system updates, and it appears to be the same issue on the Windows side as well.
A Mac user has found a workaround for Windows 8 update that uses a special file, named ‘install_windows_8_x86_en_US’, that appears to install the update on your computer.
The file, which is in the default location of %APPDATA%\System32\drivers, has been around since Windows 8, but it is now found in a different location.
It’s easy to find, and the Mac user found that the file is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Apple\OS X\Install_Windows_8.1.exe.
Once you open it, you’ll be greeted with a list of options.
There’s a number of ‘help’ buttons for getting help with installing the update, but most of the time, these buttons will simply pop up a menu to install Windows updates.
But this isn’t the case here.
The file is only found in the /C drive, and there are only two ways you can access it.
Either you can click on the icon that looks like an asterisk, or right-click the file and choose ‘Open as shortcut’.
This will open a shortcut to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Apple\Software\Apple Inc\Installer\x86en.exe, and you can use that to install updates on your Mac.
The file name of this file is actually ‘Install_windows.x86.en_us’.
The Windows version of this update is actually a 64-bit update, so the file will run in your 64-Bit version of Windows.
There are several ways to remove this file from your computer, and most of them will require a reboot.
Method 1: Open the Finder, right-clicking on the installer folder, and choosing ‘Open in Finder’.
The Finder will open up a window that will allow you to use your keyboard and mouse to navigate through the file.
Once you find the file, click on it and choose it from the list of ‘Help’ options.
You’ll then be prompted to choose the ‘Remove’ option.
Remove ‘Install Windows 8/8.x/8/8 Core’ from your Computer, and press ‘Yes’ to confirm the prompt.
When you click ‘Remove’, you’ll see a popup asking you to ‘Do you want to remove all files and folders on your system?’
Click ‘Yes’, and you’ll receive a confirmation message that says ‘Yes, remove all other files and directories.
Option 2: Remove the ‘Install X86’ file from the Windows 8 Installer folder.
Method 3: Remove ‘Install x86en’ from the ‘X86’ folder of the Windows Installer file.
This method will delete the ‘x86’ directory from the installation folder, which makes a total of two files that need to be deleted.
The first is the ‘Installed X86en’.
This file is a directory that contains all of the files and settings needed to run the installation of the OS X version of the update.
If you don’t delete this file, the update will install to the install folder that contains the ‘Setup’ folder.
The second file is the x86_x64.exe file that installs the update in your machine.
The x86 file is in this case the ‘setup_x16.exe’ file.
After you’ve deleted the file that’s in the install directory, you can move the x64.dll to the same location that the x16.dll file is stored.
This is where the ‘install.exe script’ lives.
The ‘setup.exescript’ is where you install the updates.
