    Hello Wolfy,

    You will need to have Windows 8 Pro installed to get the free Windows 8 Media Center Pack.

    If you only have Windows 8 installed, then you would have to purchase the Windows 8 Pro Pack that include Media Center.

    Hope this helps,

Before I install Windows 8 I would like to have the key code for Windows Media Center. I have been waiting for over 2 days for Microsoft to send me the key code. Do I have to have Windows 8 installed and activated before they will send me the key code?
