    Is this just a compilation of various Windows updates or what?

    I get the feeling I've already downloaded everything via Windows update over time. I'm not sure though.

    generally hotfixes arent in windows update. theyre there for you to download "incase" you are affected. this one just compiles a bunch of them together. Unlikely youll have anything but a few of them

    It's a bug, it doesn't work on Internet Explorer 10 either.

    Nevermind, user error. Apparently there's a separate page for that notification, and I just copy pasted it into IE. Regardless, I just used the direct download posted earlier.

    I guess I should have stated that I installed the Rollup and had no issues.

    A reboot is required.

    Safe to install then? Did anyone actually see any benefits?

    What about that update that brought dx11.1? Is it still causing performance issues for 3dmark?

    That was a beta for the platform update which came with IE 10. No issues with the final version.

    At least, here, it did nothing wrong. Everything is working just fine.
    Maybe a little bit snappier i think.
