How To Update Kodi On Windows Steps

The current stable release for Windows is Kodi 17.4 Krypton.  The process in the video is updating to Kodi 16.1 but the same steps will work when updating to Kodi 17.4.

  1.  Close Kodi on your Windows device.
  2. Go to and download the most recent Windows installer for Kodi.
  3. After the new version of Kodi has been downloaded, launch the .exe file.
  4. Go through each of the Kodi installation screens.  When you do this, you should get a message that your current Kodi files will be overwritten.  This is a good thing and you will want to proceed.
  5. After Windows has successfully installed the Kodi update, launch Kodi and ensure that all of your addons, skins, and settings are intact.

    Kodi installer won’t work for me, it pops up a message asking me to install a windows Platform package KB2670838 which is actually installed? I uninstalled it and re-installed it and still the same message? Any ideas?
