    Revision Note: V1.1 (February 28, 2014): Bulletin revised to announce a detection change in the 2912390 update for Windows 8.1 for 32-bit Systems, Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2. This is a detection change only. There were no changes to the update files. Customers who have already successfully updated their systems do not need to take any action.
