    Windows Media Center win-8.1 on win-10 install

    Just ran into this and thought I would share,
    Might be something/ might be nothing but Microsoft is saying to do a re-install or in-place install to correct the issue

    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.
