    Comme le dit hbhb il semblerait que ta version de win pro soit une version VL et dans ce cas impossible de rajouter WMC
    As stated hbhb it seems that your version of win pro is VL version and in this case you can not add WMC

    and see which version you have

    You need to have Pro VL SKU, not Pro Retail.

    Is 8.1 upgrade a one-way trip or can it be reverted back to original 8.0

    You mean the other way round?

    Anyway.... roblem is why is there the "Add features" thingy if he's running VL in the first place?

    this is right. Only pro shows this option. What I was wondering was the screenshot reading windows 8.1 professional instead of simply pro. Never had this on my machines

    the original situation was that your pc came with 8 and was legally activated. Question: was it shipped with core or pro?
    If it came with pro, why did you use a volume version for upgrade? If you used the retail version and used your original 8 key, you have no need to activate with KMS.
    When upgraded to 8.1 retail you simply can use your original WMC key and done

    sorry Wiki, cannot answer question about Tito's tool because I never used it that way.
    Reset will only go back to a point like clean install of 8.1 and no software remains.
    Dual boot might be an option but why?

    With my PC is supplied the software ArcsoftTV5 that is less convenient than WMC.

    In addition I have office 2013 active.

    in terms of WMC using it for TV purpose I must agree that it would be the best option but there are several 3rd party tool which are doing a great job as well.
    Keeping 0ffice activated is the next reason to let it sit like it is
