Three weeks after it issued the Preview version of the Windows 8.1 update for Windows 8 and RT, and two weeks after an initial set of fixes for the pre-release update, Microsoft has done it again: Today, the firm releases five new fixes for the Windows 8.1 Preview.

Check out Microsoft Delivers Fixes for Windows 8.1 Preview for a rundown of the initial set of fixes, which included numerous application compatibility fixes, among other things. As with that set of updates, you need to visit Windows Update to download and install the new set of fixes. Available updates include:

You try to access corporate network resources when you are connected over VPN on a Windows 8.1 Preview-based computer. In this situation, you may be prompted to re-enter your domain credentials.
