    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    And when I find a way to get rid of it in 8,1 I'll do that as well. Since ex7forW8 uses Windows 7 explorer, I'll try sticking Windows 8's explorer into 8,1.

    I wish I had known about ex7forW8 sooner, it would have saved me a lot of trouble, But there are still lots of Mods I havent tried yet

    Why not just use Windows 7.

    Sorry, I'll just say good night to you out there in California.
    I'm just south of Boston. Good Luck.
