How to make system installs visible

I'm using HP Client Automation at my job to handle remote software installs over the network. We are currently repackaging all of our apps to do a major rollout of Windows 7 to replace XP. I use the QB! switch religously during installs in XP to give users an indication that the system is actually doing something, and to let them know when it is completed. Apparently, however, in Windows 7, when an app is installed as system (which is how HPCA works to get around admin rights issues), the install is invisible to the end-user.

Is there a way to make these system installs visible ? Installing apps as anything but System is not an option for me.
