KB3002339 Not Installing

I have been installing the Update for Visual Studio 2012 (KB3002339) for over an hour now and it's still not done. I took a look at the support article and it looks like it's a small bug fix update. So why is it taking so long to install?

just for reference I'm installing it on two different laptops:

laptop one specs:

Toshiba L735

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Intel Core i3 2nd gen dual core @ 2.2 GHz per core


Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate 32-bit

laptop two specs:

Toshiba P50

Windows 8.1 with update 64-bit

Intel Core i7 4th gen quad core @ 2.4 GHz per core


Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate 32-bit

Both laptops have been sitting on this laptop for well over an hour and any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
