Friends,

I possess a legit Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Key.  Can I use this key to activate an "N" version ISO I downloaded from mydigitallife.com?

Second, has anyone heard of/exerienced issues with the "N" version (such as media not displaying properly due to absence of Windows Media Player?

Thank you Friends

I use Windows 7 N with enterprise licensed. The media files doesnt play because there is no media player included. But i downloaded and installed media player from microsoft site and it works just fine.

Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Key will not work on Windows N.

I don't think that you can use your ultimate key for your N version, Instead your N version can be added with the media pack separately as media pack doesn't come along with.

Which version of N you do have ? Profession N or Enterprise N ?

You definitely can NOT use a standard Windows 7 key for the N edition.   Your key is good for either Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Ultimate K edition.    The "N" and "KN" edition keys are separate (i.e. an N key will also work with KN).
