    Hi

    I tried to get the free Media centre offer.
    All I got was we can't process your order,
    No why no other information.

    Windows 8.1


    try a different email address.

    I actually took it off (which requires a few steps), because all i needed it for was DVD playback, which I'm now using VLC for.

    Hopefully someone makes a Windows Store DVD playback app. I would actually pay money and buy it.

    I wonder why MS are giving up on some of their good products.
    It makes me feel they are loosing their way.

    The Windows 8 start screen is basically WMC.

    Hi mine is now working
    The problem after getting the key thanks to MS.
    Was a piece of software I had not knowingly put on my machine.
    NALPERION a software licencing module comes with Adobe pdf type apps.
    MS tech disabled it and we were able to complete the installation which took ages. Why???
