GeneralSilent updates... Pin

Alright, time for a rant.

I've just had Office 365 install an update on my system, and as usual, it asked me to shut down Outlook before proceeding.

This is one of those installs that don't show any progress or provide any feedback once the update process in underway. It also never tells you when it's done. So I have no indication as to whether it should be ok for me to restart Outlook or not.

I've relied on the presence of officeclicktorun.exe (as a running task) in the past to determine whether those O365 patches are done installing, but it seems these days I always have an instance of that running and never going away. mscorsvw.exe also seems to commonly get launched when O365 updates are being installed, but I've also seen instances where it's just sitting there, with no CPU or disk activity, so I still have no idea whether it's done or not.

Microsoft, I realize you want to make as many things run transparently in the background as possible, so as not to interrupt the end user, but can you please let me know when I can restart the apps I was asked to shut down? Because while in that state, my workflow already has been interrupted.
