System Center Update Publisher will let you publish many 3rd party updates to your own WSUS server. There are requirements for the source package, but it's all documented clearly.

  • i need to import windows update manually i already download it from internet, is there any way to import it to wsus ? – Eddy Aug 18 '10 at 22:28
  • Not that I'm aware of. Why not just let WSUS download it?? – Chris S Aug 18 '10 at 22:48
  • so there is no way to do that – Eddy Aug 19 '10 at 20:28
  1. In the WSUS admin console, navigate to the Update Services/WSUSSERVER/Updates tree, right-click and click "Import Updates...".
  2. Search and find the update.
  3. Add to basket.
  4. View basket.
  5. Check Import directly into Windows Server Updates Services
  6. Click Import.
  7. The ActiveX performs the API calls to import the metadata and the update to the WSUS installation.

For third party updates, check out Local Update Publisher.


  • I pick this method over the 3rd party methods. Worked just fine!! – Pimp Juice IT Nov 5 '19 at 18:54
