Hi

how would a ts deployment react to this:

Show-InstallationWelcome -CloseApps "iexplore, outlook" -AllowDefer -DeferTimes 3 -CheckDiskSpace -PersistPrompt -BlockExecution

I have a few programs that I want to add to future laptop installations and also want to deploy to all existing laptops/desktops.

Should I just create 2 programs or will the toolkit somehow NOT create a popup when deployed with TS?

The TS is detected and the install switches to NonInteractive mode (completely silent).

For CM07 I'd create a Package with 2 Programs, one running as the user (Existing machines) and one running as SYSTEM with no interaction (OSD) and use them accordingly. For CM12, I'd create an Application with a detection for your existing machines and a separate package for OSD - I find Applications really flakey in CM12 OSD.

That's just how I'd do it though. Someone else might have a better suggestion.
