Can you upgrade program via GP that was not installed via GP??

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am just beginning to install software using group policy software distribution.  I have 10 new computers I am setting up, and thought I had heard that you can't upgrade or patch software via GP unless it was initially installed via GP?  Is this the case?  I'm wondering when I create the Ghost images for the new Windows 7 PC's whether all the apps for the image would need to be installed via GP on the master image?  Can anyone provide me a heads up on this?
