Just wait...



  • I thought I had a go at Visual Studio C++ express. So I installed. Which, basically, went just fine. The fact that the second patch is larger than the original installation file is kinda odd, but when installing SP1, I get an windows update error.

     From what I gather, something is wrong in "my" dot net installations somewhere, so I had to clean that up. With a nice tool called ".net framework setup cleanup utility".

    Didn't appear to do much, so I opened it's log. Bottom lines read:

    [07/09/12,11:50:44] Launching process 'C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe /x {8E34682C-8118-31F1-BC4C-98CD9675E1C2} /qn' now
    [07/09/12,11:50:44] Process successfully launched. Waiting 900 seconds for it to complete.

     900 seconds... time enough to write this. What a bunch of fucktards.

    Fresh from the IDGAF school of thought.

    Are we to assume that the 900 seconds is a constant, rather than a timeout?  How long did it actually take?

    On the positive side, it does give them the opportunity to provide you with a perfectly reliable progress bar!
