Windows Media Center for Windows 8 Pro
« on: October 27, 2012, 07:03:57 PM »

If you have just brought Windows 8 Pro you will realise Windows Media Center is missing!
Q: But it was in Windows 7 Home Premium?
A: Yes it was! to cut cost they removed it from release and are selling it as an add-on feature or upgrade pack.

Here I tell you how you can get it but it's only for a limited time only and is said to expire at the end of November 2012. You need to be running Windows 8 Pro to upgrade as this is for those who brought it thinking they would be getting it Free. Fortunately the base Windows 8 users can upgrade with the Windows 8 Pro Pack available from the Microsoft Store for $69.99: Microsoft Store Online

Go to Add features - Microsoft Windows and and submit you Windows Live ID and they will e-mail you a key within 24-48 hours.

Once you get it, boot into Windows 8 and go to:

My Computer > Right Click > Properties > Activation Information > Add Feature > Select I have a Key > Enter the Key in the e-mail

Your PC will automaticlly download, install and reboot after updating and you should have Windows Media Center now.
