I received an error message trying to download some files for a class I am about to teach. Click F12 in your Internet Explorer browser and lower the document mode and user agent string to e.g. If you use document mode 11, you may see this error: As always, you will also need to have Microsoft’s File Transfer Manager installed. After some research, it was became clear that this error appeared only on Windows 10 devices. Start Internet Explorer using “Run as administrator” – and your problem is long gone.

Set the Product code to: Option 2: File system, type file Path: %Program Files(x86)%\Microsoft Office\root\Office16 File name: Checkbox status: checked Set the property to Version – greater than 16.0 Option 3: Regkey Setting type: Registry Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Uninstall\O365Pro Plus Retail -[Language code] Hope this helps!

Well, probably not much, really, not inventing a new wheel or anything…big deal…wannafightaboudit?
This is how I got to the Windows Update Configuration screen (pictured below): Click the Local Server(1) menu item on the left panel, and under the main Properties Info Box, use the scrollbar to slide all the way to the right(2), so you can see your Windows Update settings.
Click the link for Windows Update Not Configured(3) to open the Windows Update settings.
