    I installed 8.1 on my surface RT a few weeks ago relatively smoothly. However, when reinstalling my apps some wont install including surfaceforums.net! also discourse.

    When I try to install I get a message saying the apps are no longer available and have been removed from windows store. Any solutions?

    Just a couple of days left now for the GA of 8.1...hopefully, all these quirks will have been dealt with by then!

    Yeah I had a firmware update today and was hoping it would sort it out but unfortunately no. Not too long to wait hopefully.

    Don't forget to check for updates after installing 8.1. There will be a bunch.

    Cheers, I sorted the apps. but unfortunately the update screwed up my keyboards which are working. After an online chat with MS last night lasting 2 hours they gave up and offered me an exchange.
