what does "verifying..." mean in IE7 download?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Steve Richter, Feb 2, 2007.

  1. downloading the VS2005 service pack for Vista....

    after the 431MB download, the download window was displaying
    "verifying..." for about 10 minutes. With XP I never saw anything like
    that. Is "verifying" something new in Vista?

  2. I have a lot of time on my hands ... now for the last 10+ minutes I
    am looking at "Windows installer .... preparing to install" no
    progress info, all my past experiences are counter to how slow this PC
    has become. Even typing is sluggish - panic city is setting in ;)

  3. what an aweful experience. after 40+ minutes of waiting with little
    progress info, all the time spent "verifying" and "installing" is
    wasted. The installer tells me I have to first uninstall MS Web
    application projects before installing the service pack! No
    indication at all that I can resume the install ...

    even uninstalling software is an adventure. uninstalling MS Web
    application projects from VS is taking 10+ minutes. ( it has been
    saying time remaining 9 seconds for the last 3 minutes ) As part of
    the uninstall process the entire PC goes dark because an "unknown"
    program from Microsoft is trying to access my system. Until I decide
    to allow that program to access my system my PC is locked up - what if
    I want to use the internet to research this unknown program from this
    unknown company called "microsoft"?
