Using Application Packager before deployment

Last Modified: 2014-08-30
In SCCM 2012 when deploying an Application to end users, does the Application need to be prepared by sort of an Application packager ? I thought  we just need to  use the MSI file of the APP and deploy it...just like when deploying an APP through GPO.

Another thing is if the Application  already exists (old version), and you want to uninstall it during the install of the new version, how can this be achieved ?

Any help will be very much appreciated .
