I am upgrading to 5.0 from 4.5.
I have been sitting here after running convert500.asp with convert500access.txt - the progress bar is moving extremely slowly - how long should this take.

And in a few comments to the makers - this is a stupid system and more info needs to be put in the $upgrade.htm file as to what people should expect - not just what they should do.

Has anybody else done this or had it take forever? (I've been waiting 10mins or so) - we have over 1000 products, if its to do with db size.

The utility should be instantaneous. My guess is that you have run into the following.

There is a known problem with Norton Anti Virus installed and trying to read files. We read files when templates are used. I believe you may have run into this situation (that is our guess)

Norton AntIvirus will cause reading files to "hang" your
system. That is the symptom you are having.

If you have opened your access db or any table on access db is opened , it might slow down the process.
Note to Prank:
There are billions of people and everyone expect different thing. If you gonna list down the expectations, $upgrade.htm file will be of billions of pages... Are you ready to read all those!!!!
