I know this type of question has been asked before, but I’m asking again…

Does anyone know of a way to dynamically change the ‘splashtext’ line in the amp.conf file? I would like to pass a variable or other text to the end user to let them know what is installing during a Managed Install.

Example: If the client needs Java, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash, and Winzip all the user sees currently is “Please wait while your computer is updated…”. It would be nice to have KACE pass along what is being installed so the end user doesn’t think their computer is froze – kind of like a progress bar or something.

Also, does anyone know if this has been requested as a feature? If not I’ll put a feature request in.

I don't know if there is a current Feature Request on kace.uservoice.com for this. Nor do I think you can put any sort of "variable" in that splash text, because it is probably running client-side and wouldn't have access to the KBox DB to populate such a variable. Also, that message could display during functions other than Managed Installations, which complicates it further. r2
