Scripting Question

Making a Kace script visible

06/14/2018 816 views
I created a Kace script for an installation of Office 365.  The install works fine, but it is totally silent.  I would like to make the install visible to the users so that know an installation of Office 365 is taking place (which is usually replacing an earlier version of Office) and when it has completed.  All of the commands I put in the script to make it visible or in the batch files that it calls are ignored and the script continues to run silently.

Is there a way to make the Kace script run in way that it is visible during the install?

What user are you running the script as? System or something other than logged-in user will not appear on screen.

An alternative would be the notification popup, to let them know you're starting the install. Or even choose to snooze,cancel, or ok the install.

The script is running as an Active Directory user that we created called "kaceadmin".  I will try the notification popup.  One other thing to note is that the install is being run from user downloads.
