Cant find Windows Media Player in Windows 10

Original Title: Windows Media Player

So I updated to Win10.  I cannot find WMP (NOT WMC) to rip some CD's.  I cannot run Groove Music, it errors out with a link to download Media Feature Pack which I did and yet I still do not have WMP nor can I run Groove.  So far this Win10 thing is not what I was hoping for!!!

Anyone have an idea how I can get Groove and WMP on this Win10 machine?

For the matter: I solved the issue. Turns out that there are 2 separate media feature packs and google leads to only one. For all people reading it in future: You need to install update KB3099229 not the KB3010081. Both are marked as solving the issue but only the first one works.
