Windows Explorer Restarts during Agent Upgrade: Here is how to prevent and show progress
One common complaint about System Update, is that when "Show Progress" was enabled, ZCM used "Balloon Tips" to show the progress due to issues with "Toast Notifications" in early releases of Windows 10. The drawback is that to enable them and then turn them off again, explorer needed to be started when the System Update both started and finished.
ZCM 2020 introduces a new registry key: ShowDefaultNotifications
When this key is in place, ZCM will use the standard Toast Notifications which eliminates any need to restart Explorer.exe when "Show Progress" is enabled.
Since the initial issues seen with "Toast Notifications" and Windows 10 were something that was seen more in the "Wild" than controlled lab conditions, I would LOVE if I could get some feedback from real people in the real world that this was working seamlessly for them.
If I can get sufficient real-world confirmation, I may push development to make 'True' the default. However, before I make any such push, I would to be highly confident the chance of any issue is small. The folks who know about the key, can easily enable it. I just hope to target a new default for folks who are unaware of the key.
