Before I dive into the question, I have found several other questions that seem similar to mine, but they have not been able to solve my problem. Here are links to them:
Now onto the question: I need to run a Windows Update script on a remote machine via Powershell. If I remote into the machine via mstsc, run Powershell as administrator and run the Windows Update script, it works fine. If I remote into the machine via mstsc, run Powershell WITHOUT choosing the run as administrator, and run the script, I will get a bunch of errors along this line: "Exception calling "Download" with "0" argument(s): "Exception from HRESULT: 0x80240044""
This only happens if I run it WITHOUT admin privileges.
The script I am running is this: http://www.ehow.com/how_8724332_use-powershell-run-windows-updates.html
Now, when I remote into the machine using Enter-PSSession and try to run the script I get errors, but they are a little bit different. They are along this line: "Exception calling "CreateUpdateDownloader" with "0" argument(s): "Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))""
I am open to suggestions as to what could be causing this problem, but I think I have it figured out. I believe that the Powershell session needs to be run with elevated privileges. I know how to do this while remoting in via mstsc, but I have been unable to find a way to do this via Enter-PSSession. I have Googled and Googled, but have not found anything. If anyone could help shed some light on this, that would be greatly appreciated.
