Thanks james007,

But I am not looking for patch management. I am looking for Software management? I want pop-up must appear once the software package gets download into the system and when it's trying to install?

Pop Up: - like "MS office Installation is in Progress"  

Thanks & Regards,

Nagesh Singh

Hi Nagesh Singh,

You need a notification on NS Server or client side?

Hi Nagesh Singh,

1. By default after import of software package it automatically generates installation command lines which contain parameter to perform install/repair/uninstall of package without UI. You can see this command line when you're adding a package in "Managed Delivery" policy ►

2. You can change default install command line type to "Install for all users %package name%"  then it will pop-up message just when software will initiate installation on client side ►

3. I've changed default installation command line with no-UI to another install command line which will shows pop-up when client will receive "Managed Delivery" policy 

Example how it looks on client side with install command line with UI ►

And do you have enabled "Show popup notifications" in Symatec Management Agent options?

HI All,

It means we could not give the Customized Massage like”Software started installing on your system”?

Thanks & Regards,

Perhaps the ASDK's "AeXAgentLib..::.DisplayBalloon Method" included as part of your MSD will help?
