    What? I didn't look at your links, but I downloaded the custom Windows Media Center installation from a site (not remember where I found it) and the Windows 8 version does work. It runs an installation script in an elevated Command Prompt and copies the necessary files and registers the relevant components. If you Google a little you may find it. It works as expected (haven't tried a WMC remote, as I don't have one), only thing missing is DVD support.

    Yes, I downloaded the patch from Microsoft but when attempting to install it you get a message that it is not supported in this version of Windows. If you had upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro with WMC it should install though.

    That's what I downloaded, but this is the Windows 10 version and didn't work for me. A little Google search later and I found the Windows 8 version. This worked on my Windows 10 Pro 64-bit installation.

    First time did not work.

    Wait after reboot and chose second file as administrator and wait for files to load in cmd window.
    Perhaps close security / antivirus window temporarily

I've just tested and I was able to add Media Center to Windows 10 with my Windows 8 media center key :party: Although my desktop watermark now shows as Windows 8.1 with media center.
