    I could never get Windows Media Center to work so I won't miss it. Since Windows 8 I have been using MPC to play DVD's which also works on Windows 10.

    In Windows 8 it was the only Microsoft DVD player. WMP had DVD functionality removed and pro pack didn't affect WMP. All media pack does is install WMC.

    Win 10 1703 (15063.483)

    I have Microsoft DVD player on both of the machines that I upgraded from Win 8.1 Pro (both with WMC).
    This is the most simplistic non-functional POC* program that I have ever seen come out of M$!
    * A more politically correct term than "POS", but both are equally applicable.
    If I connect a USB DVD to my Alienware computer, insert a DVD and open DVD player, I get a Playback Error 0x80040287.
    If I insert the DVD into my Desktop and then start DVD player, it does indeed recognize and play the DVD, however, compared even to WMC, it is sadly lacking in functionality. The ONLY functionality that I see is to play a physical DVD, NO BluRay or software files AT ALL.
    I do have 2 PCs configured as Media machines, one in the Living Room and one in the MBR and with proper setup, programing and the proper Green Button remote, work to perfection (mostly). Both of these PCs are running Windows 7 Pro and will NOT be upgraded to 10 in the foreseeable future.
    And M$ is actually expecting customers to PAY for this?

    People who had Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center or Windows 7 Ultimate will then get DVD player to replace Media Center.
    Not if you have the "N" version. If its Windows x "N", no Media Player. Windows 7 Ultimate didn't get me the DVD Player for some reason? 8.1 Pro with MC did, but 7 ult didn't?

    I understand USB DVD being glitchy, but I fail to see anything wrong with how you described it on your Desktop. Bluray is completely different from DVD and is much harder to implement (plus has never been offered by Microsoft). And playback of ripped DVDs is still a legal can of worms that Microsoft can just leave to third parties. It still sounds like it will be perfectly useable by the majority of users, with the rest using VLC or software that came with their pc/Bluray player. If I wanted a bloated swiss army knife of features I'd buy PowerDVD or something else that tries to justify it's high price.

    I did the Media Creation tool and used my USB thumb drive to install Win 10 on my Win 8.1 laptop with Media Center. When 10 installed it told me it was uninstalling Media Center, which it did. Anyway I just noticed I was given Windows DVD Player.

    Anyway I've got a copy of CyberLink's Power DVD which also support Blu-Ray playback so no biggie there. Besides I've not used Media Center since dumping my TV tuner card some time ago. In fact I don't even have it installed on my Win 8 desktop.

    If you Mount the ISO first then start the app it works fine.
