How to Show Progress for Multiple Windows Features Being Enabled

Summary

How to show progress for multiple Windows features being enabled during the a suite install

Synopsis

This article provides an alternative to logging packages within a suite setup without passing the /log parameter.

Discussion

If Windows features needed for a package is not enabled during the suite install, it will be enabled as part of the setup process. However, if multiple windows features need to be enabled, the suite install will display the message ?Installing Windows features/roles...?, but the progress bar will not increment for each feature being enabled. The end user might mistaken the install being frozen with no progress being displayed.

A second progress bar can be added to the InstallationProgress dialog. Instead of associating with the "ISInstallProgress" property, it can associate with the "ISParcelProgress" property. The new progress bar will reset in between each windows feature being enabled. This will provide a sense of progression to the end user.
