Driver management in Windows: How to download and install Fujitsu DeskUpdate and DeskUpdate Manager

Fujitsu DeskUpdate and DeskUpdate Manager

DeskUpdate Manager enables you to prepare and sort drivers suitable for your Fujitsu Client operating system (OS). You can install these drivers using your software distribution system, such as SCCM, and so on. The DeskUpdate Manager functions by connecting to the Fujitsu driver inventory and gathers the drivers and installation tools and thus be downloaded and stored in a driver repository. Afterward, you can use your software installation system to distribute and install the drivers automatically with the DeskUpdate command-line tool DUCMD. The individual client devices do not need Internet access.

The figure below shows the basic operation of the DeskUpdate Manager. As you can see, Internet connection is very vital.

DeskUpdate: Desktupdate searches the Fujitsu database (driver repository) for new drivers, bios updates, and system-specific software packages for your system. You can select the packages it finds and have DeskUpdate install them. DeskUpdate is an application for automatic software installation (drivers and utilities). This software is only for systems from Fujitsu.
