Managing Rules in Updates Publisher

When creating a software update definition in System Center Updates Publisher, rules are used to check whether the computer meets the prerequisites for the update, whether the update is applicable to the computer, and whether the software update is already installed on the computer. The rules are categorized as basic or MSI (Microsoft Windows Installer) rules, and there are over 20 rule types. Rules can be saved and managed from a central location in Updates Publisher and then reused when creating or modifying software updates definitions. Updates Publisher rules can be created, modified, and deleted by using the Manage Rules dialog box, Create Update Wizard, or Modify Update Wizard.
