    Program Files on different drive

    It seems I am not alone in this: kb3172985 and 3174060 - Microsoft Community

    Any ideas?
    If you have changed your default Program Files directory in the registry to a different drive, the updates will not install.

    Thank you for posting this. I have been trying to figure out why my updates weren't installing for months now.
