i recently refreshed my win10 install and now when i try to install the WMC pack it says it is already installed, however the 'C:\Windows\ehome' directory is no longer there and has been moved to 'C:\Windows.old\ehome' copying the files back and running the uninstaller does not work either, what should i do?

delete/move/rename the eHome folder located in \programdata\Microsoft then run the installer
