What Is The Purpose Of The Progress Bar?
Windows XP Pro SP3
I had to download and install three high priority updates. The first two download fine but the
third one failed to download. The progress bar was blank during the downloads.
During the installations it was blank for most of the installation of the first update -- about five
I then downloaded and installed the third one -- Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 (that failed to
download originally). The progress bar was blank during the 431.7 MB download and during most of
the installation. During the beginning (first five to ten minutes) of the installation there was a
lot of disk activity but the progress bar remained empty. Then the disk activity stop for a few
minutes and still the progress bar was empty. After a while the disk activity started again but the
progress bar was still empty.
