Manually editing software in GPO
I had trouble adding an MSI to a GPO (it didn't have a security tab and the package wouldn't show in the list). I worked out this was because the author has put a leading space on the ProductName of the MSI. I modified this and successfully added it. Now 10 entries for the same MSI appear int the policy which would have been caused when I was trying to add it with the leading space and assuming it wasn't adding because it wasn't displayed.
If I remove one of the entries they all disappear, and if I add it back in they all reppear. Is it just a case of deleting the duplica AAS files in the policy, or is it more involved, or impossible without receating the policy from scratch? Thanks

I sort of understand most of what you're saying. I can't say I have ever experienced the duplication problems you describe, but I would remove all the relevant software GPOs first, then delete the files and then create a new software GPO for your updated MSI package.

Yeah, there are about 150 packages in the policy, so I don't particularly want to be recreating if avoidable. Thanks.

Would Exporting the GPO settingsto backup, deleting it and the restoring them help fix it?

Thats why I use 1 gpo per piece of software.
