    Windows 10 N version upgrade... Where's the Media Feature Pack?


    So W10 is out, yet the Media Feature Pack isn't.


    In case you don't know, the Media Feature Pack is what brings back Windows Media Player to Windows N versions.


    For example, here's W8.1's download page: Download Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 8.1 from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Or 7's: Download Media Feature Pack for Windows 7 N with Service Pack 1 and Windows 7 KN with Service Pack 1 (KB968211) from Official Microsoft Download Center



    The reason I want the Media Feature Pack is because I cannot stand these "apps" replacements. I want my good 'ol Windows Media Player.

    Also, I should add...

    When W8.0 came out, MS released the Media Feature Pack a few days before the OS came out.

    Do what I do and just use K-Light Codec pack.
    It has all the codecs you will ever need, is constantly being updated, comes with Windows Media Player Classic x86 and x64 and is 100% free.
    It will play anything including 4K videos with ease.

    Not really visible in the Microsoft Download Center but I found the link to the Media Feature Pack for N versions of Windows 10:

    Oddly enough I gave a link a website that allows you to install the Windows Media Center back to Win 10 and some booger decided to delete it. I guess, no links? Jealousy to another site?
    Win Aero also has plenty of tutorials to basically uninstall ANYTHING on 10 that you just don't want.

    That would be me. Try using the search feature.

    There already is a thread here about the media center.

I want to know if the "free" upgrade to windows 10 is a 32-bit OS or a 64-bit OS? I understand the "Home" and "Pro" versions (I know there are more versions than that) but there is no clear explanation of bit version. Maybe it's something so obvious...
