Why should I update Red Giant Link? Updating to the latest versions of Link ensures the best possible experience for using your products, as updates contain new features, performance enhancements, and bug fixes. Why does Link need Admin privileges? The reason is similar to why admin privileges are needed whenever you install software: Link checks the system files that store your serial numbers so it knows what version you own and whether it is licensed or not.
