Great Plains Update - Server not Responding

I am installing Round 4 Tax of a GP update to our server.  In the middle of the update, the server stopped responding.  Can I end the task and start over?  ( the stopped response time has been over an hour).

The update finished after 2 hours with Server Not Responding message.

Glad it finally finished successfully--that is frustrating when GP database processes or updates appear to hang.  It can happen during an update, and during the creation of the test database or new company databases.

For future reference, one thing that I do to make sure it hasn't quit completely is launch SQL Server Profiler and start a SQL trace on the server.  This will show me if the database is still getting requests and if the GP client is still active.
