Hi just a question regarding dism.exe and that its used to install the majority of the updates.

Im aware that it has a progress bar while installing updates. Can this be used with wsus or would it cause to many problems?

Hi.

As I see it ("dism /?"), you can only specify "/Quiet" - or leave it.
Do we really want that?

It could be useful as some updates take an extraordinarily long time. Dotnet updates and Windows 10 CUs are notorious for that behavior. The updates consist of packages which are applied to the live Windows Image with DISM, and each package should advance the DISM progress bar. Note that the progress bar might not prove very useful for atomic operations (e. g. updates that consist of a single package only).

Best introduced as an experimental, optional feature, open for testing.

I agree with the larger updates one update for Windows 10 took almost an hour to do with no output saying it was doing something. Also going into task manager did not help with knowing if the update was busy or not. Maybe for the really big updates of a few 100 meg and windows 10 that can be 1 gig plus would be useful or have an option that allows the user to turn it on or off from the update program?

Shameless self-quote:

If it doesn't work well, there's always the option to nix it again.
