  • I guess in October when 8.1 is available to the general public. Do you need it now as developer?

  • Hi,

    Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 8.1 is not released yet, Please wait, It would be released after Windows 8.1 released I believe.

  • I am looking for this as well. It appears pretty much all windows 8.1 app games and Skype require the media features? I am not sure but all I know is that when I try and open any of these apps they close immediately. Other apps e.g. Bing ones work fine. I saw a post that describes exactly the same issue that I have in Windows 8 and the thing that fixed it was installing the media pack, as it wasn't included with N and KN. Unfortunately I could do without reinstalling the non N and KN editions to test this out. Any other suggestions welcome!

  • Hi,

    You need it to install Zune and try your Windows Phone App in a real telephone.

  • Why don't you use the normal Editions from MSDN?

  • Hi,

    yeah, it would be great to get it as developer. I am using a library that depends on it and am very unhappy since I can't use it right now. With officially having released it, it would be great to make the pack available also!

    Best Regards!

  • Will it be available soon? 8.1 release date is today, I think.
