    Hey.

    I have an activated windows 8.1 pro and I'm trying to add the media center, but when I'm entering the upgrade key, I'm getting this: "This key won't work. Check it and try again, or try different key".

    This is the free WMC key that I got from Microsoft and it worked with windows 8 before. Any help would be appreciated.
