SOLUTION:  See below after commentary ;)

Commentary:

Microsoft was no help at all.  In fact I experienced one support agent who told me that if I wasn't happy, I could go back to Windows 8.1.  Well I was 'happy' with Windows 10 and had exchanged my Windows 8.1 license for it.  I was only trying to do the same with my Windows Media Center License that I paid for and was entitled to do as a paying customer.

Completely telling me to 'pound sound' and the hell with whatever promise Microsoft made publically to people like me, who owned a copy of Windows Media Center and yet for whatever reason never received the Windows DVD App that we were promised in exchange for our Media Center License that we paid for.

Never tell your customer to 'pound sand', because some of us will pound it, turn that sand into glass, keeping pounding it into coal, and eventually sh*t out a diamond.  Here is my diamond, Microsoft.

SOLUTION:

1.  Download from Windows Update:

http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2015/07/windows10.0-kb3081704-x64_ceaa55720fcf4dc8d568b7acb4cf9acf27f54f41.cab

2.  Make 2 directories, c:\temp and c:\temp2

3. Extract the windows10.0-kb3081704-x64.msi file from downloaded cabinet file into c:\temp

4. Open command prompt as admin and type (or copy/paste this):

msiexec /a c:\temp\windows10.0-kb3081704-x64.msi /qb TARGETDIR=c:\temp2

5. Open PowerShell as admin and type (or copy/paste this, all one line):

Add-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online -PackagePath c:\temp2\InstallDVDAppxPackage\cd0c0ffe0ee94518833e70b1e931fcff.appxbundle -LicensePath c:\temp2\InstallDVDAppxPackage\cd0c0ffe0ee94518833e70b1e931fcff_License1.xml

Congratulations, you now have Windows DVD App as promised.  :)

Answer
Answer

1st and most importantly, you must use both CMD (command prompt) and PowerShell with Administrator level access.

To do this, search for CMD, right click, then select "Run as Administrator".

Search for PowerShell, right click, then select "Run as Administrator"

If you do not do this as the administrator with administrator access... None of this will work.

To answer your question, yes, you need to press enter to execute the command.  Simply typing it out (or pasting it) does not execute the command.  

No a reboot is not required.
