When attempting to use a non-administrator account, the following error will appear:

    “New-PSSession: [computerName] Connecting to remote server localhost failed with the following error message: The WSMan service could not launch a host process to process the given request.

    “Microsoft strongly recommends you install the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system before installing the latest cumulative update (LCU). SSUs improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the LCU and applying Microsoft security fixes. For more information, see Servicing stack updates.

    If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU (KB4477137) will be offered to you automatically. To get the stand-alone package for the latest SSU, go to the Microsoft Update Catalog.
