The Create Update Wizard in the System Center Updates Publisher enables you to create new software update definitions and the Modify Update Wizard enables you to modify existing definitions. Each wizard configures the software update information, defines the rules associated with the update, and configures the software update type.

System Center Updates Publisher 4.0 supports updates that have dependencies, such as drivers and bundles, but these updates cannot be created or modified.

The wizard pages are described in the following table.
