Installation Wizard - while installing any package, 'Installing..' loader keep on showing even small size of package and never ending installation.

enter image description here

This happening in my local development(Sitecore 8.1) environment. Actually it is completing installation but not hiding loader.

Anyone know how to fix this issue.

This issue was due to no write access onto temp folder inside virtual directory(website folder).

In the InstallPackageForm class, the function WatchForInstallationStatus() is responsible for the "Job started: WatchStatus" logmessage. This function starts a new thread in which it checks the status of the package installation which is stored in the temp folder.

In my case,the IIS_IUSRS role did not have write access on the temp folder inside website. After I give permission on it, things are working.
