I run Win10 and LibreOffice 6.2.2. I tried to update to 6.2.5 and get the requirement that the install be done as an administrator. There is no option to "run and administrator" when executing. I have verified that the file I downloaded is a .msi file. I have verified that account I am in has administrator privileges. I have restarted the computer and get the same result. The install the first time removed the 6.2.2 install. I had the original download for that install and it reinstalled fine. Any help appreciated. KCØDE.

Open Windows Explorer. Mark the *.msi file. In Windows Explorer, select the "App Tools" tab. Select "Run as administrator".

If you have fundamental problems with the installation, check the FAQ here.

Or consult the M$ _Fix problems.

I wish you success!

Thanks for the quick response. It did not work. I ran the MS Troubleshooter and no issue found. I checked other downloaded files and found "Run ad Administrator" as an option. It appears only the LibreOffice file is at fault. I have a successful install and re in stall of 6.2.2. It is only the 6.2.5 that is failing.
