$15 for DVD player software?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10. not expecting to be forced to pay $15 for DVD player software. this is crazy. how do you take away something I had when originally bought the product. I hope this is changed, because something as basic as playing DVDs on my laptop, should be free!!!

  • Win 10 has a dvd player.  (windows media player) It does not have a burner and there are literally dozens of free ones including VLC

  • Hi papipruna,

    Unfortunately your post is off topic here, in the MSDN Subscriptions feedback forum, because it is not feedback regarding the MSDN Subscription. This is only one forum among the many that are on the MSDN Discussion Forums, and given the content of your post, you likely chose the wrong forum. This is a standard response I’ve written up in advance to help many people (thousands, really.) who happen to post their question in my forum, but please don’t ignore it. The links provided below I’ve collected to help with many issues we’ve seen. 

    For technical issues with Microsoft products that you would run into as an end user of those products, one great source of info and help is http://answers.microsoft.com, which has sections for Windows, Hotmail, Office, IE, and other products. Office related forums are also here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/support/contact-us-FX103894077.aspx 

    For Technical issues with Microsoft products that you might have as an IT professional (like more technical installation issues, or other IT issues), you should head to the TechNet Discussion forums at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us, and search for the product in question. 

    For issues with products you might have as a Developer (like how to talk to APIs, what version of software do what, or other developer issues), you should head to the MSDN discussion forums at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us, and search for your product, technology, or issue. 

    If you’re asking a question particularly about one of the Microsoft Dynamics products, a great place to start is here: http://community.dynamics.com/. 

    If you really think your issue is related to the MSDN Subscription, and I screwed up, I apologize! Please repost your question to the discussion forum and include much more detail about your problem, that could include screenshots of the issue (do not include subscription information or product keys in your screenshots!), and/or links to the problem you’re seeing.  

    If you really have no idea where to post this question, then you shouldn’t have posted here, because we have a forum just for you! It’s called the ‘Where is the forum for…?’ forum and it's here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/whatforum/ 

    Moving your post to the off topic forum. 

    Thanks ,

    Sowmya
