SCUP (System Center Updates Publisher) enables independent software vendors or line-of-business application developers to manage custom updates.

Using SCUP, you can:

  • Import updates from external catalogs (non-Microsoft update catalogs).
  • Modify update definitions including applicability, and deployment metadata.
  • Export updates to external catalogs.
  • Publish updates to an update server.

An updated version of System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP) is now available and can be downloaded HERE.  This release of SCUP adds support for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.  For detailed information about supported operating systems and prerequisites, see the Install Updates Publisher topic.
