Stuck on, "Preparing to download..."Follow

I was lucky enough to get a beta key this morning and lucky again to get it registered this afternoon. I downloaded the client without issue, but when I launch by double clicking the icon my desk top it says,

"Preparing to download..." and in the upper left corner "Boot Version: 2010.06.25.2002"

I left it like that for 4 hours now and was really hoping it would have moved by now. I couldn't find a tech forum for FFXIV, but if this is not the prper place for a question like this I'll be very happy to delete it. Any help much appreciated! My PC skills are not very advanced, but I don't usually get stuck on something so easy as double clicking!

Calling it for the night, maybe just bad luck. Went to click cancel and it seems to have no effect. So I tried to x out and thats not doing anything either. Had to close using task manager. Not sure if that info will help anyone disagnose my problem. Thanks in a advance if anyone has any ideas on what I could try next!

Unfortunately the program provided by SE doesn't really work well, check this post for more information on how to use an alternative torrent client, with that you download should finish almost instantaneously.
