That sounds like the installer was waiting for a lock on a shared resource, like the ClickOnce install directory or something like that. Did you have anything else running that might have been doing this, like another installer or upgrader?

Yes it turned out to be something to do with my pc and my user rights.

Thanks a million for your help.
