I downloaded SP2 that patches my 38599 build to 40040. I started to patch it an hour ago and it still didn't perform not even 10% of the patch. If it continues at that pace it's gonna take about 10 hours... Is that normal??

Yes it takes ages especially if you have a lot of content because it converts the content file formats. Just let it run and don't use the PC while its running if you can avoid doing so.

Note: the progress bar is misleading, it will move quickly during later parts of the install.

There are loads of posts on the forum about this if you want more detail just try a forum search..

Cheers

Chris

Yes, I'm afraid so. In some cases it can take up to twenty-four hours. I think this is due to it updating assets as well as the program, and operations on the assets database take a very long time.
