Hello all,
My team and I are looking to develop a firmware update feature on a system in the UEFI space. It seems standard that we create a capsule with will contain the firmware binary and be distributed by Microsoft. Then UpdateCapsule() will process the capsule and complete the update.

How do we specify our device will receive the update and follow our update procedure?

Do we load in an additional FMP driver? or do we give a UEFI application to handle the update process?

Thank you for your time

    In case you want to update firmware locally in your network, you may do it using Configuration Manager or Software Distribution policy like any other application deployment.
    However, in case you want to deploy it using Windows Update, you need to have an agreement with Microsoft.
    For this, you may contact Microsoft in your country and consider becoming a partner.
