    You will have to fresh install the 64-bit version.

    That happened to me as well. I downloaded the 64bit tool, and it installed a 32bit OS. How I do not know but I had to reinstall my win 8, update to 8.1 then re-download the 64bit tool and start again. I was so confused as to why my programs that worked on my insider builds would not work. Anyway thats how I did it, someone may know a better way round your problem.
