I got it to work through a fluke thing. Typed in CMD in the search and there were several commands from the 8.8.1 folder listed. clicked on them in the same order and it uninstalled and installed successfully. The only issue I have now is the guide loads, but I can't search for TV recordings by "Keyword" without getting an error saying search results my be incomplete because the guide listings are still being indexed. I also have to change resolution to 1920 x 1080 from my 4k laptop for WMC to load and be able to navigate it.
