Software download stuck at 11% should I do anything?

I just forced a net connect this morning and my 2020 started downloading the new software and has been stuck at 11% for about 20 minutes. Should I wait or should I stop and start over?

It just moved, Sorry I am so impatient but I am very excited http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
I guess getting this excited about the new software qualifies me for full Geek status http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
Funny, mine was also stuck at 11% today for about 20 minutes and then jumped to 63%.

All is well.
It was mentioned before that the percentage is calculated (I believe) only after a complete file has been transferred. So obviously there is a large file in the middle of the upgrade, and the percentage won't recalculate until it is complete...
Mark, have you not been on these boards before? http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

I am reminded of the annoyingly complicated VB setup programs which were a PITA to set up, but did manage to get the %'s to scroll by with some correlation to the total amount of data installed, not a discrete file-by-file jump.

I wonder if the new suite of java tools have a similar widget? Time to go scope through swing...

Yeah, I guess I should apologize for this. When I designed it, I assumed that software updates would generally be happening in the middle of the night with no one watching, so it didn't really matter that the percentage complete indicator didn't exactly track the duration. I didn't anticipate that people would be doing manual downloads and actually watching the indicator!

Are you kidding? Office building close down for the day so employees can run home to download these updates!

...Well I did anyway!
