I have a package that I created for deployment in sccm 2012.  But I would like a pop up message before the package runs telling the user to close any opened apps.

How can I display this. I do not see anything in the package or deployment configuration to allow for this.

As far as I know there is no default way to do this in SCCM.

You can follow the guide / tip on following url:
http://blog.coretech.dk/kea/running-a-custom-notification-before-installing-a-program-with-configuration-manager/

This method basically means you install a separate program first and then when creating packages / programs in SCCM you tell it to run a program first (which you already installed) which then displays a message to user to close any programs while IT is installing applications.

This is the best method to use as far as I know.
