Win7 pretty normal setup here, but for some reason this ~1GB game doesn't want to install. It starts to install and the progress meter comes up, but it hangs and stalls around like 5% as if it wanted to take 6 hours to install a 1gig game. What the hell?

Edit - For anybody with the same issue, the install goes very very slow at the start, but then once it gets up to around 10%, it takes off and installs the rest in minutes. My total install time on my standard HDD (not an SSD) was about 20 minutes, pretty crazy for this 1.4 gig game and about five times as long as it took to download lol but at least it finally installed.

Thank you! I was tempted to terminate the installer until I came across this post. Took about 30 minutes for me stuck at 5% then it quickly finished up within a couple minutes. Windows 10, even with an SSD. Seemed to be doing more with the CPU than the disk.

Glad it helped lol.
I checked my ssd and cpu activity and restarted the installer several times thinking that the download was corrupt, but it turns out that the winning move was not to care.
Thanks man!

Thank you for having the patience that i did not. I quit the installer maybe 3 times or more and redownloaded, too. Turns out I'm just an impatient git. Then I read this post and just walked away for awhile...
