I have applications deployed via a GPO that come from one source and I wish to change the source can I modify the path without having to redeploy the applications?

Hello there,
I am working on exactly the same issue. Did you distribute per computer or per user?

If need to change the Group policy object then the software will uninstall and reinstall.

Simple as that.

Perhaps if you need multiple installation sites you can look into DFS and then you assign the policy to source from a DFS link. Once its assigned from there it doesnt matter where the user is as long as they can see any DFS link....the software will install because it doesnt depend on UNC or drive letter.

The software will (according to Microsoft) remain installed if you assigned it correctly,
that is, 'leave software installed if it falls out of...' But i have not seen it working correctly...
DFS is a great idea, but also that 1 is full of bugs.
You could also change the the installpath by registry, it's in here:
It's a great deal of work, but if you're handy with vbs (and possibly a deployment method like Altiris) it could work out well

You have another option of course and that is to use Source Locations in your msi's.
