It’s been quite some time since we wrote our original guide on how to install XBMC for Windows and we have since released the new XBMCHUB Wizard for Windows as well. Since we didn’t have one guide that explained the whole process from A to Z, we figured why not go ahead and write a new one? Please continue reading and you’ll be up and running with XBMC for Windows in no time at all.
