Upgrading, Patching, and Removing Applications

Applications that have been installed using a GPO Installer package can also be upgraded, patched, or removed. Upgrading an existing application involves installing a new application in place of the old one, and can be either mandatory or optional. Complete removal of the old application may be required during the upgrade.

Sometimes, an upgrade simply requires replacing certain files, not installing a completely new version of the software. This is called patching. Patching applies only to applications that were installed using Native Installer Files. A patch is applied by obtaining an .MSP or .MSI file from the original vendor. The new files and the patch file are copied to the original shared location and a new package is created in the GPO that handled the original install.
