Enable custom right-click options for MSP updates

It would be great if there were feature parity for custom right-click actions across all update types. In particular we've noticed MSP's right-click options are largely greyed out (attached). We've run into the odd occasion where this would have been especially useful as the update causes a reboot if the application is in use. In that example we'd simply enable "Skip installation when the application is in use" option, or otherwise use a Pre-Update script to check ourselves.

    +3 for this. Would allow updating Acrobat Reader even where the "MSI Source" is missing. Could easily be solved by adding the MSI to the PMPC payload (.CAB) file, and then pre-running these 3 lines of PowerShell:
    $RegKey = "68AB67CA7DA73301B744CAF070E41400"

    $RegPath = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\$RegKey\SourceList\Net"

    New-ItemProperty -Path $RegPath -Name 2 -Value "$PSScriptRoot\" -PropertyType ExpandString -Force

    +1 for the pre/post scripts for Acrobat - we have a bunch of cleanup for Acrobat printers that needs to be run after patching.

    +1 for the pre/post scripts. We customize the Adobe Reader DC install, and it would be handy to include our scripts.

Allow verbose logs on MSP Updates

MSP updates like for the Adobe Acrobat products should allow verbose logging.

Add the Manage Conflicting Process feature for MSP Updates

Since MSP Updates don't support Pre/Post scripts, can you add support for the Manage Conflicting Process feature? This would allow terminating the application before applying the MSP and avoid the need for a reboot. Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is a pr...
