Hi experts.

For the processor series Intel Skylake and newer, there is a patch from Microsoft  for Win10 1803:

(article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4346084/kb4346084-intel-microcode-updates )

Why it may be, that it can be installed on various systems, while on other, identical systems (same CPU, Board, Firmware and OS build), the installation is denied saying
The update is not suitable for your computer.

?

I am out of ideas here. Could you observe the same?
