    Hi

    I have the need to have Media Center Pack as a separate package so that I can install it without the Internet.

    So, how can I solve this problem?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Just enter the upgrade key... installation doesn't need active internet connection.

    I think its not recommended to use WDI as it uses data.dat swapping method which will be flagged by MS anytime.

    Seriously, what the hell is with people's desire to have Media Centre garbage that they will not use??

    WMC is part of the Windows 8 Pro ISO already .. When you "add features" they are just unlocking what's there already .

    I have to also agree the WMC is worthless ... I use a USB Cable from my Computer to the Big Screen to watch Movies... also that new USB Wireless Adapter is pretty nice ...
    my gosh a 46" HD computer

    I use on my HTPC with the Ceton cable card tuner. I would be lost without it. Once you customize WMC (media browser & MCE Reset Toolbox). By itself, I aggee that the interface is pretty drab.

    A curiosity: If a person, like me, have Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit, as it does to install the Media Center Pack for Windows 8?

    Thanks
