Can't load the Microsoft Update Catalog add-in to IE on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi -

    Trying to download KB3081444.  Only options offered are microsoft.com/downloads, which doesn't have it, and the Microsoft Update Catalog site.

    I went there with Edge (I'm running Win 10) but it told me to use IE.  Once at the page, I keep getting told that "this web site wants to add the following add-on: "Microsoft Update Catalog" from "Microsoft Corporation."  (Are there quotes because IE doesn't believe it's really Microsoft?  Or is it just being sarcastic?  Hard to tell sometimes. :-) )

    Anyway, I always click "Install," but nothing happens.  F12 offers no help.  Any idea how a fully updated, licensed copy of Windows 10 Enterprise running the latest version of Internet Explorer (with no fancy security settings cranked up) can't load an ActiveX control from Microsoft Corporation while trying to download updates from Microsoft's Update Catalog?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

  • Hi Mark,

    I made a test on Windows 10 using IE and succeeded.

    I suppose the problem is more related to IE, we could post in IE forum for better help:

    Besides, as a workaround, we could install the update using Windows Update.

    Best Regards,
