We are in the middle of implementing group policy at my company to do software deployments.  All the applications so far were installed by hand.  Is it possible to do upgrades from here on out if the current applications were not installed using group policy?  My first guess would be no judging by when I am in the upgrades tab of the new version, I have no previous  GPO to point the new upgrade software package at.  Windows 2003 server and XP clients.
