Hello. Is there a way to have pre/post install messages when installing software from the portal (Software Library). One complaint I get from users is that they don't know when the install is completed.
Answer Summary:
I created pre/post install messages using autoit. I ran the pre.exe before my install, and the post.exe after. There's probably a better way, but I still new to autoit. $answer = MsgBox(1, "Software Restart", "Your computer need to be restarted to complete your install. Click OK to restart now.") If $answer = 2 Then Exit EndIf If $answer = 1 Then Shutdown(4) EndIf

Not sure about the Portal doing that but what you could do is create a script that they could run from the portal and it can contain a all done message. Depending on the application I would assume they could see a shortcut on their Desktop or New application message from the Start button but again that could be application dependent.

  • Further to nshah's comment you can actually use the KACE notification app to post a message the same as the agent does for other things via a script.
