How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Allow third party applications or scripts to send status messages in WinPE

Currently we have the ability to post status messages in the OS, but not under WinPE. We'd very much like to be able to report on Nomad download progress during the WinPE stage of the deployment in order to true up the new Nomad dashboard with this part of the deployment process.

    To clarify, Microsoft should provide the interfaces necessary for calling the Configuration Manager Management Point SDK API from within WinPE. This relates to the operation of the 1E Nomad agent, an Alternate Content Provider.

    Right now it is not possible to use the Client SDK within WinPE (or so we have been told by Microsoft).
