Need to display a message when delivering a package from sccm 2012

I have a package that is set to uninstall some software, but I need to have a popup message saying that I need the users to reboot at sometime later in the day.

How can I do that with a Package? I don't see any configurable entry for it.

Thanks

Use a batch file. Use msgbox command in vbs or something like this.

Or if it's not urgent, set the package to run when no user is logged in and set the package to reboot the PC itself afterwards.

If your users are like mine, when your warning popup appears, they will misread its text as saying "I'm in your way, click OK to get rid of me"...!

what about creating a task sequence with each of the uninstall task and a final restart command with a timer?

I uses this method this to push out Java and Adobe updates.
