    My wife's pc has always smoothly updated and installed windows and java updates. I now get the error message, unable to launch the java update installer the requested operation requires elevation.

    Searching these forums I found information regarding user account permissions and followed an instruction to right click on the the java icon I located in the start button Search line and clicked run as administator and the black window flashed on the screen. Then I tried to install the update, but same error message. Any help appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Sorry, I did post the exact error message in the text body, but abreviated it in the title.

    The link suggested seems to have sorted everything out as the update is now installed. A manual check for updates shows the latest version is installed.
    So thank you very much for your help in solving this problem so quickly.
