TIme taken for install of designer - 2020.2

12 - Quasar

So not a question per se, just a comment that I noticed the install of 2020.2 took around 30 mins, there was a long time sat on the screen below. I've not noticed this before so just wanted people to be aware the install has NOT crashed, and it *will* complete (if your experience is the same as mine).

Mine seems to be stuck on a previous screen "Uninstalling Predictive Tool..."  Going for about 15 minutes so far

I must have gotten really lucky.  In the past this was always my experience. 

For me that was not the case on 2020.2.  This time it was just under 20 mins start to finish.

Mine took quite a bit longer than previous installs. But it is chock-full of goodness.

Longer and longer it seems.  Wouldn't it be nice to have "CORE" installation in foreground and Python and R install in the background.  Or an option to upgrade unattended at night might make the wait less painful.

I just did the upgrade from the first 2020.2 server release to 2020.2.3 server and timed it with a stopwatch.

I'm curious if you guys could do the same and post your results.

From the time of clicking "run as admin" on the installer to the prompt to install predictive tools: 12 min 54 seconds.

From the time of starting predictive tools install to the prompt for completing install/run now: 2 mins 10 seconds.

Total time (which includes previous version uninstall): 15 mins 4 seconds


It seems odd to me that I used to have this problem of installs dragging on for 45 or 60  or more minutes and don't any longer while others are reporting the opposite problem.

@chris_love Thanks for the heads up, twice I have cancelled the install thinking it was an error. I will go watch some paint dry 🙂
