Installing managed software
So this is a weird one, when deploying managed software via GPO, the software does install on the clients, but when installing, it doesnt display the "Installing managed software" dialog box, we just get the usual windows blue background with the mouse cursor, plenty of HD activity, then when the software has installed the logon box appears.
Any idea why we don't get the message (as it would be useful to see whats installing, and therefore the progress depending on which software package is being installed)?

Could be something to do with the verbose logon setting, you want to enable it which may solve the issue:
How to enable verbose startup, shutdown, logon, and logoff status Messages in the Windows Server 2003 family In a domain environment
If you are in a domain environment and you want to enable verbose status messages on a group of computers, follow these steps:
- Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
- Right-click the container for the domain or the organizational unit to which you want to apply the policy settings, and then click Properties.
- Click the Group Policy tab.
- Click New, and then type a descriptive name for the new Group Policy object (GPO).
- Click the new GPO that you created, and then click Edit.
- Expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, and then click System.
- In the right pane, double-click Verbose vs normal status messages.
- Click Enabled, and then click OK.
- Close Group Policy Object Editor, click OK, and then quit Active Directory Users and Computers.
Windows ignores this setting if the Remove Boot / Shutdown / Logon / Logoff status messages
setting is turned on.

Thanks Synack, I found that the "Remove Boot / Shutdown / Logon / Logoff status messages" policy was enabled in one of the many we seem to have running. It all needs a tidy up, but this issue is solved so thanks!!
