How long should it take to install Sims Workstation?
I have just installed Sims Workstation on a computer. The computer has 750mb ram and a P4 2.8. It has took what seems like an eternity (20mins) to install.
What should be a normal time to do this?

It takes on average here around 5 mins, little slower on older PCs, faster on the newer desktops.
A number of things can affect install / upgrade speed:
1) Antivirus (sophos in particular when running run on-access scanning)
2) Age of your PC
3) Age of the Sims server
4) Speed of your network.
5) Peak usage times, ie just after an update when all the teacher's machines are updating too. Or at first login in the morning.
Hope this gives you some pointers

Looks like its Sophos.
Do you mean on access scanning on the Sims server or on the workstation I am installing it on.
