Limitations of Windows 7 N and KN edition

Windows 7 N and 7 KN editions are much the same as the standard versions of Windows 7. The only thing that it lacks is multimedia support. Users cannot access the audio files that you would certainly love to hear. The audio CDs are not even supported. Similarly, you are not authorized to write any audio CDs neither can you transfer personal collection to music players that are portable. The editions do not support streaming videos from the internet and this way it affected a number of other applications as well.

The N and KN edition is also void of Windows Media Player ActiveX control that is used in displaying different information on the internet browsers and other applications. In addition, you cannot get the information for any media file displayed that is displayed by the Shell Media Property Display. You would also have no access to many of the different media formats that Windows author apart from the audio files only and this sets you in a big mess.

The Windows 7 N and KN edition are not capable of getting connected with multiple media players and you cannot even communicate with other portable media player features. Media Sharing is not also available in the feature of Windows 7 N and KN editions.

The best feature perhaps is the Windows Media Center that lets you organize you photos, videos and music. The application lets you use your computer as a DVR and unfortunately you cannot use this feature as well.

The Windows Media Format Feature Pack

The above mentioned applications have made many other applications difficult to run on your system and you won’t be able to run many different services on your computer.
