comment Installing the Windows 8.1 update on a non-admin account?
@JamesMcMahon - Both 'net...' and the GUI are using the same internal Windows commands. You could use the GUI if you prefer. Command line is usually quicker if you know what you are doing. No there are no long term problems. If you don't want to change your main account, create a new one, make it a member of the administrator group, upgrade and then delete it. It's pretty painless.

comment What's the difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit program in Windows
Good explanation. There is one aspect that needs clarification: 'relatively easy for the OS to run 32-bit programs while in 64-bit mode'. 32-bit program don't run in 64-bit mode and it is not easy to do that. They run in a different Subsystem of the OS, in this case in WOW64 (Windows on Windows 64). In certain versions of Windows you can remove WOW64 and no 32-Bit Windows program will run in such an environment.

comment Is there a way I can share the 3.42 GB download of Windows 8.1 from Windows Store?
@Louis - I didn't try a second install. I compared the command line which was used by WindowsStoreSetupbox.exe after I downloaded it from the store. I'm just saying mine were different.

In my case both the ClassId and the ReportId were totally different, so these may be random values and not constants. SessionId was different as well, in my case 6.

comment Any advantage of using Windows Server 2012 R2 instead of Windows 8.1 for a workstation
@Danish - Yes, you can some tweak things yourself, but that's a different topic and hard to answer in a comment. If you are interested, ask another question on how to make a server OS behave more like a Workstation.

comment Is SQLCMD part of the DB Engine or Client Tools?
@RandolphWest - At least for 2008 R2, if you install without the Management Tools Basic, you still get sqlcmd.exe, I've done that many times on Windows Server Core machines and use sqlcmd there all the time. I will check about this for 2012.

comment CMD says NFS tools are missing, but Explorer says they're not
Are you using the 32bit version of Xplorer Square? In that case 'C:\windows\system32' really shows the content of 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64', use the 32bit version of cmd.exe
