ServiceConnectionTool.exe - progress indicator and resume downloading

Right now it's really hard to guess how long it takes and what serviceconnectiontool.exe is doing. Is there any possibility to add some progress indicator which will tell how much elements should be downloaded, and where is it right now that little utility? Estimated size of downloading also would be helpfull. Moving files outside of pen during downloading is not a good idea, and there's no info how much more space will be needed to download all needed files. Also resuming after connection failed will be welcome. This tool should help users.

    Agree with this, especially the resume is absolutely required. Some of my customers experience proxy timeouts when downloading files. Instead of retrying the file is just skipped, with the result that the whole downloaded content is useless, unless you download again, compare the files, and replace missing ones. I would like to see a) a configurable timeout and b) a configurable retry setting.
