My boot camp assistant has been downloading "windows support software" for a long time. There is no speed indicator, or total download size.
I have tracked the network activity in activity monitor and it has so far downloaded 2.5GB and counting.
Does anyone have any idea how big this download is? It is unbelievable for them to have such a huge download without an estimate of time remaining or progress... what an absolute joke.
Update: The mac is a mac mini late 2012 running yosemite, trying to install Windows 8.1 retail.
The eventual download size was 2.8GB.
