343 minues and counting - of course the estimated time is BS, because it has only moved about 3 minutes in the last half hour....

InstallShield, the install time is absurb

Entire Operating systems don't take this long!

Explanation please.....

Download site must be getting hammered. Mine is showing 397 min left (up from 380 an hour ago) with a transfer rate of 20.4KB/s (down from a whopping 27.5KB/s an hour ago).

Our servers are experiencing a very heavy demand right now because of the large number of downloads. We are working on the situation.

Well any help with an alternate download site would be great because of course we all want to play with the new toy. :)

Congrats! Thats what I was trying to do 7 hours ago when I was getting the times above. I'll give it another shot now, sounds like the traffic isn't as bad.

We have brought on additional bandwidth to meet the heavy demand. You should now see reduced download times.
