Flex 6500, MacBook Pro running windows 8.1 64 bit.  Started from "cold" boot of computer and radio.  Closed (exited) smart cat and DAX.  Downloaded SSDR from Flex Radio download page.  Installed it without error and launched Smart SDR 1.3.8 and the radio was yellow (upgrade) so I selected upgrade and the radio display shows "updating software" and the power LED is pink.  The radio has been showing updating software for over an hour now.  How long should this take?  Should I do something to recover or just leave it?

Something's wrong, it should not take long at all. I removed all SSDR components - 1.30, CAT, DAX drivers, etc., and rebooted before installing. A re-install took about 15 minutes.
