    Media Center Pack as a separate package


    Hi

    I have the need to have Media Center Pack as a separate package so that I can install it without the Internet.

    So, how can I solve this problem?

    Thanks

    Bye

    You cannot install MC Pack on Enterprise and Core Editions of Windows 8.

    To add WMC on Windows 8 Core, you need to purchase the Windows 8 Pro Pack.

    MrShowdown covered it well. If you want WMC, you have to be running Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro.

Or was I seeing things wherever I read that? Maybe that was only free for those purchasing the 8 upgrade from other OS's? I got my OS from my Technet Plus account. By the way, it works just fine.
