    How to deploy 9.3.2 incremental patch (msp) over group policy


      Hello to all,

      i have deployed Reader 9.3.1 via group policy in windows (software installation package).

      It was installed on all clients successfully.


      Now that 9.3.2 msp file came out i need to distribute the new incremental patch to all hosts in the domain.


      I wanted to slipstream the 9.3.2 msp update into the 9.3.1 msi,so i tried the following command:


      msiexec /a AdbeRdr931_en_us.msi /p AdbeRdrUpd932_all_incr.msp


      I also tried msiexec /a AdbeRdr930_en_us.msi /p AdbeRdrUpd932_all_incr.msp supposing that it needs the 9.3.0 initial package to work.


      But the following error comes out in both commands:


      The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the windows installer service  because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch  may update a different version of the program.  Verify that the program  to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct  upgrade patch.


      What could be wrong?


      What is the recomended way to deploy an incremental patch msp file to an already deployed earlier version?
