How to approve updates for client downloading using WSUS?

    I migrated from SUS to WSUS last week and cant seem to make WSUS download
    updates from Microsoft Website. KB899588 is the update I want to deploy btw.

    I already set KB899588's Approval from Detect Only to Install. However, it
    says on the Status tab "The files for this update have not yet been
    downloaded. The update can be approved but will not be available to computers
    until the download is complete."

    How do I go about this? Pls help. (SUS was a lot straight-forward with
    approving updates IMO).
