    Please help! I tried to use my license key to Add Features to Windows 8.1 but then I got that message.

    It didn't say that when I first did it!

    I think he is talking about the "Add features to Windows 8.1" which is an item in the Control Panel, not "Turn features on or off", which is under the "Programs and features" heading in the control panel??

    You cannot add features in Windows 8
