Windows 7: I am unable to install Media Feature Pack on my Windows 7

I am unable to install Media Feature Pack on my Windows 7

I have recently changed my Windows XP to 7 and I want to Install Windows Media Player on my PC but my Windows 7 doesn't install it because it seams not to have media features included( It is Windows 7 N). Therefore, I went to this website (Download Media Feature Pack for Windows 7 N with Service Pack 1 and Windows 7 KN with Service Pack 1 (KB968211) from Official Microsoft Download Center) and downloaded its 32 bit version (Windows6.1-KB968211-x86-RefreshPkg.msu) since my computer's system type is 32-bit. However, after I downloaded it, I tried to install it but a pop-up window keeps appearing which says :" The update is not applicable to your computer". I am sure that I have downloaded correct version of the feature pack. I am very much distressed and I don't know what to do. I appreciate anyone who can suggest me a useful solution to tackle this problem because it is urgent and I have to install it.
