Default VLC Media Player update to v2.2.8

I wasn’t able to get this via the program - VLC claimed to be up to date, but the new version is available from the VideoLAN site now:

Download official VLC media player for Windows - VideoLAN

If you’re running a different OS, have a look here for the version you need:

Now installed. No 64 bit version listed ,Madeline but the good news is you can use the 32 bit version OK.

Default Re: VLC Media Player update to v2.2.8

Thanks to Stewart40 I have now updated to the 64 bit version fast. does a repair install over the resident version https://get.videolan.org/vlc/2.2.8/w....2.8-win64.exe
Only downside on Both installs having the Windows 10 FCU There was a Block Warning off W10 Firewall /Controlled Folder Access about the Updates I deleted those in the Action Centre, and the version is 2.2.8 Weatherwax (No 32 or 64 bit statement)
Any ideas on how to move the VLC file into that secure pool/folder? Can only see the W10 Upgrade Assistant file in this folder currently. Is it a move/copy across the download file to this folder and fool Windows into making this a Legit File? Has the Add link But it opens this isolated folder rather than a Menu list marker (No wizard?)

When you Enable Controlled Folder Access in Windows 10, it lets complement the protected folders with extra locations. Moreover, it permits you to add the apps that you want to allow access to those folders.

This is my goal but saying and doing it are not that easy

Enable Controlled Folder Access in Windows 10
Step 1 – Click on the Start and access Windows Defender Security Center from W alphabet on the list. Or directly hit the Security Center icon from the system tray in the taskbar.

Problem I have, it goes to the Top level status Page (All Green flag marked) and I know I have enabled this feature. Otherwise there might be a Yellow flag against ?Firewall

Bedstor, sorry you have lost me. I was about to download from the link you gave, but on reading on it seemed there was some sort of problem you came across.
So is this a straight download for 64bit FCU, or is there something to watch out for, as your later part of the post is out of my Tech domain?

Sorry to be thick on this.

Just start the Download off as usual but it does Not Go through the Preference Pages Will Leave a Desktop shortcut if the install is for the 1st Time .You'll be wanting the Start menu shortcut (Keep that ticked) As for the
secure Control Folder Item. Disregard that, Unless you have the Feature Activated ,I Deleted the warning Notices .Am studying On this Section to make it work properly

I downloaded the new version and installed it over the existing one on our PCs without any trouble. I left it at this option - "Upgrade VLC using previous settings (recommended)" - during installation and the new version works fine. I see it's called "Weatherwax" now instead of "Umbrella"!
