Nothing is showing up at all where I'd expect to see progress indicated in ArcMap. The process runs and I get a little pop up notice when it is complete, as before. I cannot see anything where I was expecting to see a "scrolling progress" before. The help system makes it looks like I should see something (the screen shot shows a progress bar, not the marquee style from before). Background processing is enabled. Do I need to do something else to make this visible? The process is running (I looked in Task Manager) but there is no indication in the ArcMap UI.

Update: Correc this to be "sometimes" cannot see bar at all. Sometimes the scrolling marquee is there, sometimes not.
