Office Startup Script That Shows Installation Progress?


  • Is there any way to deploy Office 2016 ProPlus Volume License edition plus Visio and Project not silently so that the users see a basic UI with a progress bar so they can see the installation but cannot interact with it or cancel it?

    We do not want to show the command prompt window showing details of installation commands in the login script itself.  We instead want to show the Office GUI progress box as the installation runs during startup so the users don't think their workstation is stuck while booting.  

    Can Office installation startup scripts run with the installer set as /QB, not /QN?

  • Hi,
    As far as I know, if you want to use group policy achieving the target, it could only show process instruction in command window.
    You may have a try modifying the script to switch /qn to /qb. In this case, I would suggest you post questions in script forum:
    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thank you for your understanding.
