The ONLY way to do it now as I understand... As it appears you can license it but, you cant download it any more. Find a ISO with Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center. Normally they will have install keys. This is a big one. Install with a fake Media Center key, this will enable Media Center and INSTALL THE FILES FOR WMC. After it boots up, of course Actitation will fail, Change the KEY to your legal 8.1 pro with WMC key. Activation will be successful and you will have WMC.DjFourmoney wrote: ↑Wed Dec 26, 2018 5:35 amI am looking to upgrade from W7 to W8.1 now. Like you said you can buy the activation codes from used computers on Ebay.
You need 8.1 professional correct? That way you can to the Windows Store and download WMC?
I do use a cable card and Spectrum encrypts everything
I needed to find it on a Torrent site...just make sure any activation HACKS are not pre-installed....
