Add Features to Windows 8
The Windows 8 Pro Pack allows anyone with a Windows 8 PC to pay a small
fee and upgrade to the Windows 8 Pro edition. Simply enter the product key
you purchased into the Add Features utility and Windows automatically
downloads the required files over the Internet and installs the upgrade. Your existing
applications and files remain untouched as the edition upgrade is installed.
The Windows 8 Media Center Pack is available only to users who have the
Windows 8 Pro edition installed. This pack installs Media Center, which is
almost identical to Media Center in Windows 7, along with all of the required
codecs for DVD playback and TV recording. Just enter the product key you
purchased into the Add Features utility and Windows automatically downloads
and installs Media Center.
If you decide to purchase either upgrade pack, you can find the Add Features
to Windows 8 utility by opening the Start Screen and typing Add Features to
Windows 8 , selecting the Settings category, and then clicking the shortcut. Once
the utility is loaded you have the option to buy an upgrade or enter a product
key you already purchased, as shown in Figure 1-1.
