Message to inform users that installation is in progress
Does Altiris 7.1 have a task (or something) to have a pop-up message informing users that installation is in progress and then show another when installation completed?
I have my Lync2010 package that installs 1) Lync install file 2 ) latest update -July2013 3) Lync MUI 4) A powershell script to set Lync to startup automatically at user logon.
This is installled via a software delivery policy. Installation done in silent mode
Problem: After testing (with schedule set to computer startup or user login) the total time to install the package is 2minutes. This gives the user enough time to open IE or Outlook and this may result in the installation of Lync or latest update failing.
One other solution I was thinking was to break up the package eg. First Software Delivery: Install Lync2010 + Lync automatic startup script.
Second Software Delivery : Install update + MUI. This helps to break down on the installation time.
Please let me know what you guys think,
Thank you in advance
