Media Feature Pack für die N- und KN-Editionen von Windows 8.1 erhältlich

Microsoft hatte gestern das Update auf Windows 8.1 und Windows RT 8.1 im Windows Store veröffentlicht zum Download bereitgestellt. Zudem stellte der Softwarekonzern für Nutzer die das neue Betriebssystem testen wollen, die Testversion von Windows 8.1 zum Download zur Verfügung. Registrierte Nutzer können damit 90 Tage lang das voll funktionsfähige Windows 8.1 Enterprise testen. Auch findet man im Microsoft Download Center ab sofort das kostenlose Media Feature Pack für die N- und KN-Versionen von Windows 8.1. Windows Media Player sollte eigentlich in Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista und in XP integriert sein, allerdings werden alle N- und KN-Versionen aufgrund einer Auflage der Europäischen Kommission ohne Windows Media Player und andere Multimedia Bestandteile ausgeliefert. Kunden, die die N- und KN-Versionen von Windows 8.1 erworben haben, können nun das Media Feature Pack kostenfrei herunterladen.

Windows 8

Die N- und KN-Editionen von Windows 8.1 umfassen die gleichen Funktionen wie Windows 8.1. Windows Media Player und zugehörige Technologien sind jedoch nicht im Lieferumfang dieser Versionen enthalten. Endbenutzer können dafür sorgen, dass die Medienfunktionalität ordnungsgemäß funktioniert, indem sie das Media Feature Pack für die N- und KN-Versionen von Windows 8.1 installieren. Das Feature Pack kann auf Computern angewendet werden, auf denen entweder Windows 8.1 N oder KN ausgeführt wird.
