Microsoft has officially released (some time ago) a tool to download and create your own Windows 8.1 installation media. The tool will request your language, architecture and edition, and how you want to create the media (as an USB stick, or as an ISO file for burning to a DVD). It will then download the necessary files and create your installation media.
The created media will accept all Windows 8.1 OEM, Retail Full, and Retail Upgrade keys. (For Windows 8, see here.)
You can download the tool here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/create-reset-refresh-media.
If you need iPhoto version 9.4.7, which was included in the OSX Mavericks GM release, here's the download link:
Do not install if you're not running OSX Mavericks!
There's no version check during installation, so attempting to install on an unsupported OSX version will break iPhoto.
If needed, you can use the iPhoto Library Upgrader to downgrade your library of iPhoto to an earlier version. In the tool, choose Rebuild library to do this. Do note that some of the features introduced in later versions of iPhoto will be erased from the library.
As you probably already have noticed, does Outlook prompt for credentials when configuring Outlook for use with a federated Office 365 account, regardless of whether you've set up your intranet zoning for your ADFS server in Internet Explorer options.
Apparently, this is unresolveable as Outlook (2013 and earlier) simply does not support SSO. It is currently unknown whether a subsequent version of Outlook will have this feature.
Oddly enough, Lync does support SSO.
After deleting an unused mailbox database from Exchange 2013, you may see warnings appearing in the Application log (Event Log):
The Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service was unable to process jobs in a mailbox database. Database: Missing database (GUID) Error: Database 'GUID' doesn't exist.
If removed very recently, wait for replication of AD throughout your domain, but the Mailbox Replication service will also cache the existence of the database. You can resolve this by simply restarting the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service (can be done during operation).
I'ved noticed the Airport Configuration Utility from Apple requires "elevation" (= run as administrator) to work properly on a Windows 8/8.1.
If it still throws out an error after connecting, try disabling IPv6, then reboot.
SwitchExplorer for Brocade FC switches no longer works properly on more recent versions of Java, because of security constraints. They can, however, be relaxed so you can still access your switches.
jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, RSA keySize < 1024
Note for Windows Vista and up: open the file elevated, or you won't be able to save it.
