    Is it not just a case of removing this part of the install script (like I did in V13)
    Code:
    echo Deleting the unwanted WMC languages
    
    for /d %%G in %_mui% do (
    if not exist "%SystemRoot%\%%G\explorer.exe.mui" (
      rmdir /s /q "%SystemRoot%\ehome\%%G" >nul 2>&1
      )
    )
    echo.

    I wish it was that simple, but MSVidCtl.dll didn't ship with WMC and is part of Windows, so its MUI files have never been part of the installer package. I added MSVidCtl.dll to the bundle in the 8.8.2 update, but not the MUI files.

    Note: it's likely EncDec.dll and CPFilters.dll will need a similar treatment.

    I did a clean install of windows from a may build, let it update....
    8.8.5 worked out of the box, inc music library, without turning off automatic download options
    @Kévin Chalet, when you do your next version, could you add @technodevotee missing reg fix to help WMC not crashing and corrupting the guide, "SDBI" and his fix reg one as well
    Just for any new people that havent read everything.

    It would prob be good to list @technodevotee fixes, as he wont be supplying a link to them soon, I have and im sure others have copies and can be requested, as long as he is ok with that.
    I know there is a current link but that will go once @technodevotee pulls the link
    big thanks for all that contribute to keeping WMC going

    I'm not sure what bug you're referring to. Do you have have a link mentioning what it consists in and how it's fixed?

    This was from a few pages back, but no, most every major cable company started encrypting all the channels on their line a few years back, requiring that you get a cable box or cablecard.

    didn´t found the time fpr testing 8.8.5, sorry....

    But got another Problem on 8.8.4 as the last time. Windows Update 2020-9 will not install (Error 0x800F0922). I guess, there is something "wrong" with WU / WMC ;-). Anyone the same problem?

    What ist the correct way for installing 8.8.4 / 8.8.5. Please give me all the details from beginning to the end.

    Thanks guys, you are great!

    What makes you think that the Windows update is failing due to WMC? I have numerous PCs running various combinations of Windows and WMC versions and have never had the problem you are describing.

    I didn't mean I just plugged the HDHomeRuns into the cable coming out of the wall from the cable company plant, it was the aerial output on the back of their box one would normally plug one's TV into...

    An HDHomeRun can't record from such a coaxial output on the back of a cable box. The coaxial output on the back of a cable box is used to output standard definition analog television signals to old televisions.
