Windows RT and Windows 8 file information notes
  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    VersionProductMilestoneService branch
    6.2.920 0.16 xxxWindows RT and Windows 8 RTMGDR
    6.2.920 0.20 xxxWindows RT and Windows 8 RTMLDR

MANIFEST files and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
