Windows Media Player for Windows 8 Security Upgrade

I am trying to download an audiobook from the library with Overdrive Media Console, my windows media player on widows 8 will not accept the security upgrade so that I can proceed with my download.  Has anyone else had this problem.  I have followed all of the Overdrive upgrade  instructions to the letter.

For all windows 8 users: None of the solutions offered on the forums work. I called the Overdrive support center. This is the solution:

-open IE 10 as administrator (right mouse click IE, click on "run as administrator)

-copy/paste and open: http://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/Indivsite/en/indivit.asp

-open IE tools (wheel at top right) and select "F12 developer tools"

-an extra screen appears at the bottom of the screen. Click on the box: browser mode: IE10

-from popup select: internet explorer 10 compatibility mode view

-NOW click on UPGRADE box.

Presto: problem solved.

Same problem.  Overdrive says to download security upgrade 2.5.0.1 for Windows media player.  The security download does not download to my pc.  Cannot download library items from Overdrive.  Site to download the MS security upgrade is drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/indivsite
