And I Think It's Gonna Be a Long, Long Time

I set out to install Windows 10 updates on the recording laptop earlier this evening. The first attempt failed and required me to revert to a previous install point. It's now proceeding again and is at "Preparing update, 59%", up only slightly in the last two hours from 51%

I think I will go to bed now, as I have a whole new year to try to finish this update in...

The Update

Nearly 24 hours after I started, I finally finished getting all of the Windows updates onto the recording laptop and was able to proceed back to the 15 GB download for Cubase Elements. That is now installed and initialized, so there is hope that it will actually work at Capricon.

In the meantime, I discovered that the woefully inadequate hard disk on the old machine is very full, so I uninstalled all the older versions of Cubase and Wavelab from the computer. At this point, there's about 20 GB free, which will be ok for a while. I could probably go back and delete some of the installers too, which would help.
