I had one simple task left for the afternoon...get a colleagues laptop (winten) setup with a new web project. It should be a piece of cake...copy the project files, restore the database, easy peasy...except things are never that simple.

0: It needed the latest and greatest (just released last week fresh) version of some widgets. That took about half an hour.
1: Try starting SSMS and it fails.
2: Try to start services but it fails with some obscure mmc error.
3: Shut everything down for a restart and see there's an update long could that take?
4: On restart it took around 2 hours to eventually fail and bluescreen.
5: The recovery (scanning and replacing files) has been running for an hour and is at 70%.

It looks like it's going to be a fun evening! Mad | :mad: Dead | X| Confused | :confused: Of course it's my fault somehow. Sigh | :sigh:

Edit: It turned out to be fine after all that waiting. The 5 y/o system is running on a spinning drive and is really painful to work with. In addition, that was the absolute worst trackpad I've ever worked with! (the buttons are part of the trackpad!) I kept accidently changing the zoom in VS and by mistake found that 110% is much easier to read! Laugh | :laugh:
