Let's get started by enabling a couple of updates to verify we can publish to WSUS.

Feature Enablement

To enable products to publish, check the Enable publishing of third-party updates checkbox.

Once the option is selected, you'll be able to enable other products.

Tip: When first getting started with the product, it is recommended that you only choose one or two products to reduce the time of the first sync and to validate your implementation quickly. We have found that Notepad++ and 7-Zip tend to be great initial use case tests.

To find and enable these products, you can search the list of updates using Ctrl + F or by clicking on the magnifying glass in the lower right corner.

When you select the search button a dialogue will open, type in one of our example products and hit enter, or click OK.

Once you have found the product you want to patch, click the checkbox for your preferred architecture choice and click Apply.

Tip: You can right-click All Products, Vendors, or individual Products to apply custom installation options as described in the article below.

If you happen to hit OK instead of Apply, don't worry the publisher will close after saving the changes. You can just re-open and keep right on working.
