Windows 8 Pro volume license version does not have "Add Features" therefore cannot install media center.

As the title describes, Windows 8 Pro installed from the Volume License ISO does not have the Add Features wizard, and as such it appears to be impossible to install the Windows Media Pack.

I've consulted with Live Chat support who cannot provide an answer to this, they simply said it should be done through "Add Features" which does not exist.

A similar thread was answered by saying install from a Retail disc and upgrade. However this is hardly a solution, paying for an additional Windows license when you already have a volume license.

Can anyone, preferably MSFT, provide a proper answer on how Windows Media Center can be install on Windows 8 Pro which is volume licensed. If it can't be done can some reason or justification be given as to why it can't be done.

Please see previous thread here:

You still don't get it!

I don't have Windows 8 or Windows RT, I have Windows 8 Pro in VL edition and there is nothing to say that I shouldn't have access to Media Center.

Can anyone from MS experts, let's back to square one:

the real question is : the "add features" is missing in VL installation.

Then therefore:
Users are not allowed to add features for existing computers installed the windows 8.1 VL, by anyway provided this / or some where else threats discussed. for example, media center is one of it.

However, whatever MS claims on the license/terms, let's put media center aside.
the argument here is : how can we "add features" by using the Windows 8.1 Pro VL?

the question simple is that.

thanks, and please don't go anywhere, stick to it would be much appreciated.
