As you already know, Microsoft removed Windows Media Player from its Windows 10 operating system. Of course there are always some alternatives you could use, but some of you might prefer Windows Media Center itself to Windows 10.
Windows Media Center can also be described as the older brother of Windows Media Player. It features playback features and additional features such as TV support, recording and more multimedia management options.
So if you are using Windows 10 you can install an application like Kodi or Plex or a custom version of Windows Media Center that is compatible with Windows 10.
WMC is a customized version of Windows Media Player that is compatible with all versions of the Windows 10 operating system.
Before installing, you might want to make a backup of your system.
WMC will install Windows Media Center on Windows 10. The functionality of the application is pretty much similar to the official version of Windows Media Center in earlier versions of Windows.
Installation can be done with batch files. Download the latest version of WMC from the developer page. The page is in French. Here is translated into English with Google's translation service.
The latest version of WMC is 8.8.2 and you can download it here.
Run the following batch files.
Right-click on _TestRights.cmd and select "run as administrator" to test the permissions.
Right-click InstallerBlue.cmd or InstallerGreen.cmd and select "run as administrator" to install Windows Media Center on the device if the first file you ran (_TestRights.cmd) did not present any errors. The batch files InstallerBlue.cmd and InstallerGreen.cmd install the versions of Windows Media Center in blue or green.
WMC displays all installation steps in a command line window.
The application also comes with an uninstall script, which you can run to remove the program from your system. Just right-click on uninstaller.cmd and select "run as administrator" to remove the program from your system.
Note: Windows Upgrades can remove key files from the system. So Windows Media Center may not work after a major upgrade. If this happens, simply run the installer again.
