Enable the Media Features and functionality in Windows 7 N and Windows 7 KN

Windows 7 N and Windows 7 KN editions include the same functionality as Windows 7, except that these versions of Windows do not include Windows Media Player (WMP), and related technologies.

The N edition and the KN edition of the Windows 7 operating system do not include Windows Media Player or other Windows Media-related technologies, such as Windows Media Center and Windows DVD Maker.

Note: Windows N version was / is to European market, does not include WMP. Windows K version is for Korean market, where local law requires Windows installation to put two Korean website shortcuts on desktop.

Windows KN version is a combination of these two: it installs two local, Korean website shortcuts and comes without WMP.

Therefore, you must install a separate media player in order to do any of the following:

– Play or create audio CDs, media files, and video DVDs
– Organize content in a media library
– Create playlists
– Convert audio CDs to media files
– View artist and title information about media files
– View album art about music files
– Transfer music to personal music players
– Record and playback TV broadcasts

Additionally, various Web sites and software programs rely on Windows Media-related files that are not incorporated into Windows 7 N and Windows 7 KN. These programs include Microsoft Office and Microsoft Encarta.

To enable all these Web sites and software programs to work correctly, you can install the Windows Media Feature Pack for Windows 7 N and for Windows 7 KN. More on this at KB968211.

The Media Feature Pack for Windows 7 N and Windows 7 KN will install Media Player and related technologies on a computer running Windows 7 N or Windows 7 KN edition.

End-user customers can enable the media functionality to work properly by installing the Windows Media Feature Pack for Windows 7 N and Windows 7 KN.
