One fix installations stuck at 'Preparing...' Install
Since moving to Snow Leopard, I've noticed an innumerable number of times where software installations would get stalled at the "Preparing..." stage. If you've noticed it too, chances are you're an iPhone developer, too...

It turns out the simple fix for this problem is to quit the iPhone Simulator, and then try the installation again.

Really? Is that all it takes? I encounter this ALL the time, and it's really annoying. Strange that the iPhone Simulator would interfere with Installer.app. Thanks!
