    If the MSI was deployed by Group Policy (and assigned to computers), then you can remove the existing assignment and then make a new assignment with the new MST.

    If the software has been installed manually (or by script), then my guess is that the software would have to be removed and then reinstalled using the new MST.

    It might be possible to install over the top of the existing installation, but depending on the reason for the changes in the MST, these may or may not take effect.

    I you decide to try one of these, test carefully before rolling out to production environment.
