Upgrading software through GPOs

Basically I am looking for clarification on an issue.  I seem to remember that it is impossible to use GPOs and AD to upgrade software that has been manually installed on a desktop.  Please confirm whether I am correct in this as I don't want to go out and manually uninstall software, assign it to computers, and then push the updates through GPOs.

Thanks

wsstechs,

It depends on the nature of the app....if it is an upgrade package that you roll out then i beleive its ok, however if it isnt, then you will get errors....if the software was originally installed via GPO you should be ok to uninstall it globally

Regards,

James
