If you are unable to show a progress bar, you should still indicate that it may take be a long process. For example, if installation takes more than 5 minutes, let your users know so they can get on with something else:
- Figure: Bad example - An unknown length of time. So let them know
- Figure: Good example – The coffee cup tells the user that they will be here a while
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
