Custom Updates Publishing Tool rules are created from within the Create Update Wizard or Manage Rules dialog box. Each rule configured with the custom update is verified with what is found on the client computers to determine whether the update is needed, applicable, or installed. The rules are categorized as a basic or MSI rule and have one or more rule types. The Not rule setting can be enabled on any of the rules, reversing the logical result of the rule. The following section describes basic and MSI rules and the rule types within each.
