Default Zune Software "Features Updated" again

Yep, yet again. I haven't opened this for a few weeks, so I don't know when it was official, but after the ominous, "Features Updated" message, the entire Marketplace was missing. It looks like they're trying to make it "offline only" for managing your existing Collection.

Fortunately, the old "FeaturesOverride" trick works. I added "Marketplace", but only got back the Social and Videos. I had to add "Music" as well. Actually, what I ended up doing was just looking at all of the keys under:


and just added a corresponding key of the same name under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Zune\Features Overrride

with a "DWORD (32 bit)" value of "1", and everything came back again. Oddly enough, there's still a lot of recent content. I notice the values under the keys in the "Features" key still show some countries still have some of the "Features", so I guess it's a country-by-country thing, and the US lost out recently.

Better than just disabling the software altogether, I guess.
