    Hi there people!, today i'm bringing you, a quick guide to get the Windows DVD Player App..

    I bring to you this, because maybe there is someone that couldn't get the app over Windows Update.. And going through some forums I found the solution

    Prerequisites:
    -Windows 10 upgraded from Windows 7 (Home Premium, Pro, Ultimate), Windows 8/8.1 Pro with Media Center. If you didn't upgraded, you'll have to pay around $15 to get it, sorry.

    1. Download from Windows Update:

    For 32bits: KB3081704-x86.cab

    For 64bits: KB3081704-x64.cab

    2. Make 2 directories, C:\temp and C:\temp2

    3. Extract the windows10.0-kb3081704-x64.msi file from downloaded cabinet file into c:\temp, with 7-zip or any uncompressing program

    4. Open command prompt as admin and type (or copy/paste this):

    For 32bits: msiexec /a c:\temp\windows10.0-kb3081704-x86.msi /qb TARGETDIR=c:\temp2
    For 64bits: msiexec /a c:\temp\windows10.0-kb3081704-x64.msi /qb TARGETDIR=c:\temp2

    5. Open PowerShell as admin and type (or copy/paste this, all one line):

    For both platforms:
    Add-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online -PackagePath c:\temp2\InstallDVDAppxPackage\cd0c0ffe0ee94518833e70b1e931fcff.appxbundle -LicensePath c:\temp2\InstallDVDAppxPackage\cd0c0ffe0ee94518833e70b1e931fcff_License1.xml

    Congratulations, you now have Windows DVD App as promised. :)

    You need to have had Media Center on the version you upgraded to 10 from.

    Otherwise, VLC is your friend.

    YES! That hint just worked fine and it's still working since all the W10 updates in the meantime! BUT: The App itself is not updating at all? Any new/other additional hints?
