Microsoft Fix It for Windows 8.1

I just found out that Microsoft Fix It tool won't work on Windows 8.1.   You will get this error:

Fix-it-windows-8.1

We're sorry, but your operating system is not supported by Microsoft Fix it at this time.

It appears that the Microsoft Fix It has been re-branded as a Solution Center and this version works with Windows 8.1, Windows 8 & Windows 7.
