Install applications before users can press ctrl+alt+delete to login.
Add feature to deploy applications before users are allowed to logon at the ctrl+alt+delete screen. This would be a nice alternative to having to check for running processes before installing applications and would not interrupt users in their work.

this would be a great addition - we're constantly being hammered to deploy driver updates to our client estate but by the nature of what they are installing when the user is logged on gives a poor UX. Even when we provide a notification of what is going to happen and allow the users to postpone or run we get complaints. We've gone down the route of developing an in-house tool that runs before logon as our management team want drivers to be installed silently but now they've changed tack and what us to use native CM functionality
Great idea! Other software deployment solutions do have this feature too. We used DX-Union before we switched to SCCM and our users are used to software-installation before they are able to log in.
It's pretty hard to keep some systems, especially Laptops, up to date when we are not able to wake them up and install software in our maintenace windows. Some users just don't keep their systems up to date on their own...
