Windows Media Center

Hello,
I looked for Windows Media Center on my computer, and can't find it. I have no ehome folder in my C drive, or anywhere on my computer. Where can I get it?

If you're running Win 7 Enterprise, as your info says, then I don't think it's included as it's more of a business-orientated version.

EDIT: turns out it is included, so ignore above. It might not be enabled by default - type "optionalfeatures" (no quotes) into the Start menu search, run the result (this is the Add/Remove Windows features dialogue). There may be an option for it in there.

Enterprise edition includes Media center. See this page for which edition includes what.

Go to Control panel- Programs and Features, click on "Turn windows features on or off" in the left pane, then make sure WMC box is checked.

Yep, it's under "Media Fetures", then "Windows Media Center".
