Running for 2 hours is sometimes to short, normaly it should be completely generated in a full afternoon.

Keep in mind that every time you press your keys or do something else the VRDB process is interrupted. So if you want to keep on working on your pc when it's generating it could take days.

Maybe you need to run it once overnight ?

Waldo is correct. You can try run the updating of VRDB manually and "right now" (see menu). If you have too many applications, VRDB could take a while to be completed. After three weeks, the process will begin again (by default). Thank you both  ;)
