    Windows Media Center win-8.1 on win-10 install


    Hi,
    Just ran into this and thought I would share,
    Media Center on Windows 10 Technical Preview
    Might be something/ might be nothing but Microsoft is saying to do a re-install or in-place install to correct the issue *Sad
    Cheers.

    :)

    Media Center in Windows 10

    I understand that Media Center will not be in Win 10 and will be replaced with an app for those who had media center in Win 8.1. I had to buy that as an upgrade (just days ago), and wonder if the Win 10 app will install based on the upgrade I purchased,
    or if it is just for versions of Win 8 that came w/ Media Center from the get go.

    Will there be Windows Media Center available in Windows 10

    Original title: windows 10 and media center

    I now have media center on win 8.1 pro. Will it transfer to win 10, or is all my content going to be lost?

    Windows Media Center win-8.1 on win-10 install

    Hi

    I saw this problem when I added Media Center, but it also messed up my sound.
    Fortunately I'm making a system image file when I make major changes so I was able to restore to before I did it.

    Yes it is pre beta software so everything is at your own risk. Media center at least worked when it was added (in my case) so it was a good experiment. Looking forward to later versions of the preview.

  5. Win 10 a "refresh" or an "upgrade" from Win 7 and Win 8?

    in Windows 10 Support
    Win 10 a "refresh" or an "upgrade" from Win 7 and Win 8?: I have been under the impression that Win 10 may be like an upgrade so you don't have to re-install all your desktop programs. If it is a "refresh" what a pain *Sad If it is an upgrade will it kill Windows Media Center or might it actually survive to run in Win 10? 5917
