    Windows 7 HP 64bit, Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64BIT


    His System page shows Windows 8 Pro and mine shows Windows 8 Pro with Media Center after I added WMC, so something is amiss with his system.

    If it is Enterprise Edition - why does it say win 8 Pro in the system window?

    it's why I ask if it's print screen from his PC

    edit ; OK I finish to install the pro, and I'm installing the MC right now, from what I can see is OS react like an Enterprise because when I type add feature it's exactly what he has for results

    but in case, is this print screen from your pC ? Because since you get it from work , it's look like an Enterprise, enterprise don't have the option to add feature too
    I think that you are confused because I said I got it from work. I work in IT and we got the Pro version to play with. As you see from the screen shot from my system it is Pro.

    So on a side note. Is there a difference between the RTM version and the version you would get from the store?

    Well I am not sure if the version that we got is RTM or not. But I was under the understanding that the RTM was the final product. Just not released the the public.

    How can I tell is it is the RTM?

    that's the problem the final version should read ..... win8_gdr not win8_rtm


    if you work as IT ask your company to pay you a Technet Subscription, you will have all the MS software for free as long as you use them for experiment
