If you don't mannually say it to update it will update in 2 days.
You can turn this off by disabeling automatic updates.

can you stop it? that could be really inconvenient for people working on something pc intensive in business for a while... something like some sort of industrial fluid dynamics modeling (which can take a week to run).

Some people are reporting that it says 2 days but it could be as few as 15 minutes before it completes.


It doesn't mean it's going to take 2 days to update, it just means if you dont't manually update in 2 days Windows will update itself.

I would think these machines typically have auto-update features always turned off and rarely have WAN access during rendering.

Just as in previous versions, you can turn it off completely, download and install later, tell me when there are new things, or do it automatically.
Choose which option you want.

i was curious because the tone of the article implied this was something you couldn't stop, that it would force on you. Though i'm familiar with win8, and comfortable with it, it's not on my home pc, so i was curious if this was something forced on you or a setting you could adjust.

I am pretty sure you can adjust it, I adjusted now in one of the configuration setting but I don't know if that will have any effect since I already received this message.
