    Vista Business N edition doesn’t have Windows Media Player installed hence using MediaElement class in the application will not work. Is there a way to play media files without asking user to install Windows Media Player?

    No… you must have Windows Media Player 10+ installed.  The MediaElement is a wrapper to it’s functionallity.

    Any version of Windows with the N designation, indicates "No Media Player Capability" as a result of the EU Consent Decree.  There is nothing we can do to change that.  The only option is to install the player manually.

    From my understanding, very, very few installations of N actually exist as it costs the same as the "normal" Vista license.  There is really no consumer benefit to it that I see.
