Windows Update –

Problem:

I am trying to install this Windows Update, but it gives an error saying “You need to provide administrator permission” “To complete this task, you need to sign in with an administrator account …” Of course I am a member of Administrators group already.

Workaround:

1. Find out the knowledge base # (i.e. KBxxxxxxx) of your update by clicking on the update package for more details.  For example, it could be “KB4504418”

2. Download the download directly by specifying the update package from: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4504418

3. Choose the correct 32 or 64 bit version and download it.

3. Run the downloaded update.
