    Does your WMP still work on your Win8 computer? Will it play the Digital Copy of the movie?

    If so, you may have the latest version of WMP with no need to upgrade.

    Go to the Microsoft web site and check out the various versions of WMP to see if you need anything at all.

    If others are having the same problem, it might be best to approach this matter thru the MS people. At least try to contact them. Check their Forums and FAQs.

    Here is the link to my Google search.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=upgrade+the+security+component+for+windows+media+player&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:eek:fficial&client=firefox-a&channel=rcs

    See if anything looks promising to you. I am out of ideas unless the search terms are changed. Maybe Google with turn something up.

    One other thought. Look at DVDFab. I think it has features to convert your original disc to a digital format for use on various devices. Might be an easier path.

    i can answer that question!!!

    is it a OEM copy or a Store bought copy...

    reason!!!

    microsoft upgraded the windows store to windows 8.1 if you don't have windows 8.1 installed you cannot install the component it will be grayed out on the machine!!!
