Write denied (C:\windows\softwaredistribution\download\*)

Hi!

I hope somebody can help me with this. We have SCCM deploying patches on whitelisted computers every month (I have made ccmexec.exe an updater). For the most part this works fine, but some patches generate this in ePO-console. Seems that the system is trying to create a folder in C:\windows\softwaredistribution\download\ but is denied by AppControl. How can I allow Write in this folder?

Please create a Service Request and attach gatherinfo from the affected end-point. This would generally happen if updaters are not correctly configured.
