localupdatepubl works perfectly, thanks
Very nice and helpful tool! At the time you understood how it works, setup is quite simple.
Nice and simple.
I was looking for a way to patch those stupid java & adobe apps then found this tool. It was a tad hard to get it to publish to the wsus server but the error was common enough that i was able to find others that had been through the same issues. No need for SCCM just use this tool and get the job done.
Great tool, thanks
Local Update Publisher is an excellent free add-on for Windows Software Update Services. Any admin that uses WSUS should use LUP as well. I've successfully used it to roll the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome and Adobe Flash plug-in. The only difficulty I had getting it set up, was the code signing certificate. We use an internal certificate authority server, and I found a blog post online showing how to generate the correct type of certificate, and then deploy the cert to all our computers with Group Policy. Once you get past that hurdle (or you simply buy a code signing cert online), creating and deploying updates to targeted groups is simple and reliable. I highly recommend this tool.
