Netflix won't show up

I recently installed Windows 7 Pro on my laptop. This comes with Windows Media Center. I ran WMC and it should come with a Netflix module or app but i can not get mine to show up under "Movies". Any ideas on how to "update" WMC. I've reinstalled WMC multiple times with no luck. I've reinstalled Startlight twice with no luck. Any other ideas?

I do not think that netflix module is compatible with Windows 7.

Load Windows Media Center.  Go to tasks, settings ,general, automatic download options, and click download now.  When the download finishes netflix will appear under movies

Windows Media Center (WMC) for Vista Home Premium and Ultimate can access Netflix online media. Other versions of WMC including XP Media Center and the WMC included with Windows 7, as of this date (05/30/09), do not provide this access.
So unless there's been a change ....

It became available as of 10/22 (Windows 7 release date), I believe.

RB adcom,

Is this relevant:
Go to the Tasks > Settings > General > Automatic Download Options and start an update there, the new tiles should arrive shortly.

Try to press the button on this site:

I've done this before and when i just did it right now it said it was downloading the latest guide listings. I dont know if its in the same update but the "internet TV" icon isnt there either. It said it will notify me when its done. I dont know if i have to restart the computer or reinstall windows media center after the update or what but I have definitely tried this before.

I found another website that told me to do this and it solved it:
Type into command prompt:

cd /d %WINDIR%\ehome

[HIT THE ENTER KEY]

start /wait mcupdate -uf
