Status to be returned when performing an automatic silent install
When performing an automated silent install/upgrade from the Windows command prompt, instead of the command dropping straight back to the command prompt, certain messages would be returned and at the end of the install/upgrade a return code/status would be displayed before the command ends.
This would benefit the administrators who are tasked to install/upgrade CD. Currently they have to wait and check the CD install log, when I tested this install it took approx 5 minutes to install/uninstall. I had to keep on opening the log manually and checking, when messages could be displayed and a return code/status at the end.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
We need to upgrade all our Windows estate this year and any of them run CD. We are looking to automate the installation and if the status should be returned to the command prompt it would save time and effort in manually having to the check each CD install log. When you multiple this by 100 odd installs it adds up to a lot of extra time
