    Hi everyone is the my first post here. I am facing a weird problem where i cannot add features to Windows 8.1. Please look at the screenshot in the attachment. I don't know why it is saying "You cannot add features to this version of Windows". Am being flagged as a pirated user ? What do i have to do to remove this message ? I really need to Windows Media Centre. i didnt get any help from Google. Hoping that someone can help me over here. Thanks.

    You can't add WMC in KMS/MAK activated Pro 8.1.

    You need a Genuine key to add features.

    Is there anyway I can download Windows Media Center and then add it to Windows 8.1 ??? Is there any other type of activation other than the KMS for Windows 8.1 ?

    WMC only can be added by using the "ad feature" function in windows. There is no separate d/l available for it as to my knowledge. There are only two official ways of activating windows: KMS or genuine Key ;)

    Should I uninstall KMSpico before changing my product key ??? Should I also uninstall my product key and set Windows back to "Not activated" before changing my product key ?
