The kinds of problems that are resolved by application compatibility updates

The following table lists the applications and devices that were included in this cumulative update package. This table also describes the behavior of these applications and devices after you install the update.

Compatibility updates trigger several changes in Windows RT 8.1 Preview and Windows 8.1 Preview. The following are the most common. 
Hard block
The update puts a hard block on the application. The hard block prevents an application that is incompatible with Windows RT 8.1 Preview or Windows 8.1 Preview from running on the system.

Note Microsoft enables Windows to put a hard block on a non-Microsoft application only if the manufacturer is notified.
Soft block
This update puts a soft block on the application. The soft block notifies you when the primary functionality of the application is broken or when the application experience is unstable in Windows RT 8.1 Preview or Windows 8.1 Preview.
Driver block
