Include the serviceui.exe functionality in task sequence environment by default
Many organizations create their own front-ends for ConfigMgr Task Sequences (or leverage popular third-party ones like OSD++, Pretty Good Front End, etc.). However, these only are able to be used when the task sequence is in WinPE.
Please add the serviceui.exe functionality into the default task sequence environment so it is possible to display Light Touch prompts when starting the task sequence from an existing operating system. Including serviceui.exe would be enough, or the functionality to launch interactive UI could be added to the environment natively.
Updating status to started. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.
Configmgr 2003 Technical Preview released today and has a new SDK method for task sequence progress.

Michael Murgolo recently blogged his own wrapper for serviceui.exe to make it easier to use, which I think proves the point. Let's get this functionality natively so it doesn't require MDT and wrapper scripts for a typically organization to use.
Maybe the Run Command Line step could have a "Allow interaction" check box?
