Re: pull the other one

i tried my self to upgrade to windows 10 and found YOU NEED A ADMIN PASSWORD.

Yes the admin password is required if you drive the update, if however you simply let GWX do the job, it isn't necessary because GWX uses the permissions granted to the Windows Update Service... Additionally, many systems are set to allow all users to install Windows updates...
