    Hello Bremen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Double check to make sure that you used the download from step 3 in the tutorial below for Windows 8.1 N/KN to see if that may help.

    Media Feature Pack - Install for Windows 8 N and KN

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    You're most welcome. You may have used the one for Windows 8 or 32-bit by mistake.
