Software Updater will ask for UAC elevation and admin credentials for software update.

Is there a way to make Software Updater to install updates without user interaction?

Also Software Updater show that the update was succesfull even if the user do no give admin credentials.

Example adobe reader.

    Hi @Nmjaat

    Thanks for reaching out to WithSecure Community,

    In some cases, Software Updater requests admin rights (User Access Control) when installing updates. This is a known issue, and our R&D is already working on it with high priority.

    As a temporary fix, the update can be removed (exclude) from the scope of updates.

    We encourage you to follow the development on this issue from our external communication at:
