    There is no option to keep "all" as it was clearly stated that some apps have to be reinstalled.

    Yes there is (but not always), see my comment below.

    Where is that stated? On the link to the instructions, the user was able to keep his apps. When I upgraded two desktops from 8.0 to 8.1 RTM I was presented three options: keep all, keep folders/settings, keep nothing.

    On my RT from 8.0 to 8.1 I am just offered the latter two. I suspect we are talking at cross purposes as you upgraded from 8.1 preview to RTM. I am starting at 8.0.

    So ... anyone who has actually done the 8.0 to 8.1 RTM upgrade, did you see three "keep" options, or just the two I am seeing?

    Thanks.
    It's actually stated here Microsoft goes public with Windows 8.1 upgrade policies | ZDNet

    But, it would seem that there are cases where you can upgrade without having to reinstall anything.

    On my laptop running 8.1 Preview I was able to upgrade to 8.1 RTM and I had the "keep all...." option, and on my desktop running 8.0 I upgraded to 8.1 RTM and also had the "keep all....." option. Both upgrades went smoothly and no apps needed to be reinstalled and no data was lost. It was all actually very smooth.

    Yeah, I meant the wdscore.dll file in the sources folder of the extracted ISO, I guess. I'll try your version of the file, maybe that'll solve the problem.

    Edit: I've replaced it with your copy of the file but now setup.exe is complaining about some other DLL file :( (unattend.dll)
    That to me indicates you may not have the correct ISO. I can give you mine if you want to try. Did you check file size? What is the difference? Also size of ISO? Is it the same? Right click on some of the shell files and look at version details.

    I finally got it installed now using the DISM injection method.

    I do have two issues though:
    -The major one: WiFi has become very slooooow and the connection drops from time to time :(
    -A smaller one: the Photos tile doesn't update anymore

    Does someone have a solution for the WiFi issue? It worked perfect before the upgrade.

    WiFi works perfectly fine here, just like before the upgrade. Maybe reboot the router? What was wrong with your ISO? Where the drivers not injected?

    My WiFi is fine and just let the Photos discover your pictures and its tile will update.

    But before the upgrade WiFi worked fine and on my other devices I have no WiFi issues either so it doesn't seem a router issue to me. I dunno what was wrong with the ISO but manually injecting the bare ISO fixed it.

    My router is sometimes picky and discriminates. While all other devices work fine, a particular one may not. Eg. Your rt may have picked up a new IP and has issues on that. I am giving you possible scenarios that could be problems. A reboot of a router is certainly one possible, maybe not certain, solution. Why not try?
