To resolve this issue:
“Open an elevated command prompt (search for cmd, right click, Run as Administrator) and run:
Add the following lines at the bottom of the file:
Save the file, then at the command prompt run:
Then, force an update in WMC.
Once Microsoft and Akamai figure it out, you’ll want to reopen the file using the same process, and remove those 2 lines and save the file. Otherwise, a future server update could break things for you again.”
