    When you right click the setup file does it say Run as Administrator, if so click it.

    I did find a "run as administrator" option on the setup file, clicked on it, and the installation started. When it finished, it asked to check for updates. I allowed it, but got the same message. "RT patch error, cannot download update."
    Still no luck.

    Different kind of error now. Suggest you get help from the program support site.

    Well, I don't know what happened, but in desperation, I just closed the installed program, and shut down/restarted the computer. Then, after restart, I opened the program with "run as administrator." I OKd the update, and....it TOOK!
    Still have some bugs to work on with the site support people, but at least I finally got the update.
    Thank you so much for your help!
