Locked

u do not have permission to update W XPP

By amit ·
We have a small Windows 2003 Domain (1 DC and a few 2000 and 2003 member servers) with XP Clients.

We have implemented Group Policy to lock down a number of permissions.

In the last few months I have noticed that a number of Windows Updates have not been installing properly using the Automatic Update Client. The client pops up saying that there are new updates, the user selects to install them, the client says that they are completed successfully, the user OK's that. Next day, the same updates are there to be installed again.

I have tried to run the updates manually as a user, Domain Admin and Local Admin and with all users I get the error:

In XP the only 'true' system administrator has to log on in safe mode with the user name "administrator". If XP then asks for a password, unless this has been done already, you can assign any PW you want, but remeber it for next time. Then MS/Win updates will recognize you as the system administrator. Good luck.

As Jack-M said, you should be loged on as the administrator to install certain updates or to change certain settings for the computer.

But as you said that you are the logged on as the administrator and still can't make the installation. That because the computer administrator is controlled by the Domain Server. To make the installation work, you must change the Domain Admin Security or Group policy setting at the Domain Server that you or any other Server administrator have made. Then this policy setting will enable you to install windows updates either manually or automaticlly.
