Hello I am using Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit but I only have WDDM 1.1, it should be 1.3, how do I get 1.3?

Hi batman1234 :)

WDDM drivers are usually installed via Windows Update, did you check to see if you have any updates pending?

Follow the instructions below to check for available Windows Updates and install them:
  • Click on the Windows Start Menu and select Control Panel;
  • From there, click on System and Security and select Windows Updates;
  • Click on the Check for updates button in the left-pane;
  • Wait for the scan to complete and see which updates are found, Important Updates and Recommended Updates (or Optional Updates);
  • Click on X Important Updates (X being the number of updates being found) and make sure that they are all checked;
  • Install every Important Updates found and restart your computer once it's done;

What is your computer brand and model, version of Windows 8.1 (32 or 64-bit) and what graphic card do you have?

From what I can see online, your G41 Express Chipset isn't supported by WDDM 1.3.

I wouldn't know. If you have the "Get Windows 10" app icon, open it, then click on the menu icon in the top-left corner and select the Check your PC option. It'll tell you whether your programs and devices are compatible or not with Windows 10.
