Confusion around IE9


I am looking at a TechNet article for SCCM 2007 on how to deploy IE9 as a package. Seems the process is the same for SCCM 2012. Is there a reason I cannot just use SUP in order to deploy the update since it could be deployed from WSUS? The reason I am asking is because I cannot find "Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 for <fill in blank>" published in the Software Updates. I can find Internet Explorer 9 Language Packs for Windows 7, which doesn't seem to be right.

So I guess the question, is there a reason I cannot see it in SUP, or is that not the preferred way of deploying it to the clients? If I need to create a package that is fine, I can do that.

Which categories are you synchronizing, I just checked and I have "Windows Internet Explorer 9" available for deployment in the ConfigMgr Admin Console it is categorized as a "Update Rollup" but the language packs are categoriezed as "updates".

Could it be that you don't synchronize Update rollups?
