    Last time we had more problems caused by missing WMP component in Windows version N. And people (as it seems) have really no idea that they have Windows N, and our installer cannot download and install WMP because now it is called Media feature pack.
    To be able to help such users faster i suggest to log in Mediaportal.log not only Windows version, but also "bitness" (x32/x64) and features (Pro/Home/ N / KN / whatever else).
    Attached is console app that should show needed information (look for string "OSInfo: ").
    After testing we can also add manifest entries to TVService for it able to log proper version it running on (for now W8.1 and w10 are logged as W8 by TVService).
    So please test it and report whether the info delievered in line starting with "OSInfo" is correct.

    @Developers @Testers do we need anything else to be reported about OS?

    P.S. attach updated 16.12.2015 22:47 CET

    You mentioned N and KN versions. Is it possible to detect whether the Media Feature Pack is installed for those versions?
    ...and how about detecting the Media Pack (WMC) on W8/8.1?

    Windows K:
    Code (Text):
    1. The K versions of Windows XP contain the following registry subkey:
    2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\WindowsFeatures
    3. The following registry entries are associated with this subkey:
    4.  
    5. Value name: KWeblinks
    6. Value type: REG_DWORD
    7. Value data: 0
    8.  
    9. These registry entries are used to identify Windows XP K SKUs. When it is present, the KWebLinks=dword:0 registry entry identifies the Windows XP operating system as a K version.

    Yes, this tells us whether the Windows version/edition is "N". However my question was whether it was possible to know if the Media Feature Pack is installed. In other words: I'm interested to know if we can detect that the user is missing the Media Feature Pack and give them a warning.

    Maybe the Windows version/edition changes from N/KN to regular non-N/KN after Media Feature Pack is installed???

    If set, the key must be:
    Code (Text):
    1. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\WindowsFeatures\WindowsMediaVersion
