SGX Won't Update



I can't seem to update my SGX, windows update gives the error:

There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x80070005)

Error: (08/05/2020 10:33:33 AM) (Source: Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient) (EventID: 20) (User: NT AUTHORITY)
Description: Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8024200b: Intel Corporation - System -


and if I try to update manually I get the following error with the SGX PSW install app:

The installed version of Windows is not supported by this installer. If you enable Intel® SGX on your system, Windows Update install Intel® SGX Platform Software automatically.
You can enable Intel® SGX on your system using the following App from Microsoft Store:
Note: Your computer manufacturer of IT department may select a different version of the Intel® SGX Platform Software from Windows Update than the one included. Please read the installation guide for more information.


When I go to that link in the Microsoft Store, the program is already installed and SGX is active.

I have BIOS set to Enabled.

Hello numbfx,

Which version of Windows are you using?
