Quicken for Windows requires launching as Admin to Update Now

In the past, Quicken's updater would pop up and proceed to prompt the UAC to have admin rights to update Quicken. Now it says it doesn't have the rights and just gives up. The only way to update is to launch Quicken itself as Admin.

Anyone else having this issue?

    For Windows 10 and 11 there is a 'choose where to get apps' setting. Setting this to 'anywhere' may solve your problem.

    Windows 10: Settings→Apps and Features

    Windows 11: Settings→Apps→Advanced app settings

    might be that I am NOT using a Microsoft User ID - and only using a local machine User ID -

    I do appear to have that option and it is set to everywhere. The issue started 6 weeks or so ago so at one point it was working.
