This depends on the size of the file and how good your internet connection is, I fine it's never normally more than 5 mins. Hope this helps Smile

I don't know what type of internet connection you have but it literally takes 1-2 hours to update for me!

The pets expansion had other updates which took 10 mins max but then I have a feeling this is the last update and it has taken over an 1 hour to get to 18% this is taking too long.

Uhh for me it took 10-25 minutes, but it depends on your size. I have NOTHING at the game because I uninstalled and reinstalled so..
And it depends on your memory size or internet

5 minutes. Should not take long. 4 hours is a joke & I think it could only take this long if you have heaps of crap on your hardrive! I feel sorry for you though.

Takes forever 4-8 hours, even on my laptop. Nothing but sims, iTunes, and Microsoft office on the hard drive. The computer is less than a year old. It's ridiculous
