Media centre. Win8 license should be forever. The so called "free" media centre add on /whatever it is has to be activated by end of Jan.
Hi, Can you explain what you means ? I have hard time to understand
The free Media Center key only has to be activated before Jan 31, but once activated it should not expire.
Windows Media Center - Add to Windows 8
TipFor a limited time, get Windows 8 Media Center Pack for free **
If your PC is running Windows 8 Pro and you'd like to get Windows 8 Media Center Pack so you can watch and record live TV with Windows Media Center, you can take advantage of the following special offer:
Add features - Microsoft Windows
*Offer valid from October 26, 2012, until January 31, 2013, and is limited to five licenses per customer per promotion.
So what happens when you get a free key and when entered as instructed in "Add features to Windows 8" I am presented with a dumb message: "This key won't work. Check it and try again, or try a different key."
Hello Chris, and welcome to Eight Forums.
That error message usually indicates that a mistake has been made while entering the key number. Double check to make sure that you have entered it correctly. It's not hard to make a mistake with similar characters like G and 6, or 0 and o.
Hope this helps,
