Best Method To Deploy Upgrade To MSI Package (Adobe Reader)

Hello All -

A few weeks ago, I customized an MSI package for Adobe Reader 9.4.0 with their customization tools, then deployed it via a GPO.  (Screenshots of the GPO & share below)

Now, 9.4.1 (or later) is out.  How do I need to go about upgrading it on all of my workstations? The original GPO is still active and enabled.  Do I simply create a new custom one, then replace the files in the share that the GPO points to?  if so, will the GPO be smart enough to see that the currently installed version is older than the new one when checking upon reboot?

Surely I don't have to start all over again and create a completely new GPO as I did the first  time.

NOTE:  I actually have 4 GPOs - 1 for each remote site with it's own local share.  Therefore having to start from scratch per update (especially with as many as Adobe has) would be a pain.

Thanks!

Do you have the .msp file?
I found a really good article: http://www.404techsupport.com/2009/06/26/how-to-apply-patches-msp-to-group-policy-deployed-software-msi/

Just follow that one. It worked for me.
