    Would someone tell me if this is any better. I don't know why. It is a link from the same letter that Count Mike received. It's just a FAQ, but covers several things. I have no idea why it won't work.

    Not any different, say's the same thing.
    Maybe MS pulled it or changed the link.

    Interesting also what it says about systems upgrading with Media Center (I have 2 of them)

    7 If you have Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, or Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center and you install Windows 10, Windows Media Center will be removed. For a limited time (the “eligible period”), on systems upgraded to Windows 10 from one of these older versions of Windows (a “qualified system”), a DVD playback app (“Windows DVD Player”) will be installed. Note: the Windows DVD Player may not be installed immediately; it will be installed after the first successful Windows Update. The Windows DVD Player will be available for purchase from the Window Store for systems that (i) are qualified systems but the eligible period lapsed; (ii) are non-qualified systems; or (iii) were qualified systems but Windows 10 was subsequently clean installed (in this case, Windows Update cannot detect that it was previously a qualified system).

    So, if I want to keep the Windows DVD Player on my two 8.1 Media Center systems after upgrading to W10, I can never clean install (?)

    I upgraded 4 computers yesterday. What was strange is some installed with the DVD player and some didn't. I used the same USB drive for all of them and all were Windows 7 which does have Media Center.

    I don't understand why the link won't work. I can click it and have no problems. it works for some but not for most, it seems.
