"To snag Microsoft's June patches and later ones, Windows 8.1 users better make sure they've installed the April update."
Windows 8.1 users who have not yet installed the major update rolled out in April will not be able to install future patches and bug fixes for the OS.
That requirement was first revealed when Microsoft launched the so-dubbed Windows 8.1 Update in early April. But a Microsoft spokewoman confirmed to CNET that the requirement is now in place starting with the June Patch Tuesday updates rolling out today.
"The majority of Windows 8.1 customers have installed the Windows 8.1 update," Microsoft spokeswoman Jill Lovato told CNET in an email on Monday. "For those who have not yet made the transition, those newer updates offered with this month's Update Tuesday will be considered 'not applicable.' Customers' infrastructure will continue to function; however, it should be noted that they can't consume any further updates until they apply the Windows 8.1 Update."
