If you have already upgraded to Windows 8 Pro, be sure to visit http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/feature-packs before January 31 to take advantage of the free Windows 8 Media Center Pack offer.

The Media Center pack also includes video codecs for decoding MPEG2 videos (these were previously available in Windows 7, but are limited to the Media Center pack for Windows 8 Pro users).

Even if you have no plans to use Media Center, we encourage you to take advantage of this free upgrade AND use the code before the end of January. The future DeskScapes 8 beta and release will be encouraging the use of AVI/WMV codecs for dreams.

Question, I got the cheap upgrade for Windows 8 Pro ($14.00) when I got my new computer.  I have not installed it yet.  Can I still get this Media Centre Pack key and wait to install it or must it be installed before 31 Jan?

I wouldn't have known about this if not for your post....Thanks ID

 

Philly, the fine print says you have to install this before the offer expires on January 31st.

i'd rather not have media center be any type of requirement for deskscapes

 

as media center needs to be activated seperately every time you install windows

 

and you need to call microsoft every time you activate the key as it will make windows think it's used on more then one pc

 

a litterall h*ll
