Well I upgrading after being sick and tired of all the prompts and well as expected this current version of utorrent SUX!
Torrents won't load, issues with firefox and the most annoying of them all is the error message; can't open torrent file--a totally ridiculous waste of time trying to fix these issues. What about azuerus--do they even have a b-torrent client anymore? Any help/ answers will be greatly appreciated-thanks drkhollow.

I use Vuze (formerly Azureus) and then in the UI Chooser (upper right corner), I select Classic and it looks just like the old Azureus.

I am also getting annoyed with the new utorrent. Maybe it is time for a client change!

don't know if anything is different--last version I used was 1.7.7 I think main problems is torrents won't load for seeding-- error message; cannot load torrent file --changed nothing in preferences after upgrade. Screenshot of what?

error message is :cannot load. torrent file/c/my documents/downloads/then file name.
was poking around utorrent forums and found several references but not a solution that works for me; uninstalled and reinstalled etc. etc. and still a butt-load of problems. never had one before but this is new and not fun

ok, I have tested uTorrent 1.82 and there are no problems with it at all. I also don't notice it looking different.

I think the problem you are having is related to your OS being configured incorrectly for handling .torrent files.

Trying saving the .torrent from this site, then open that folder and right-click on the .torrent file. Choose "open with..." and choose "uTorrent" from the list. If it isn't there, browse to uTorrent.exe from that window. Most importantly, be sure to check the box that says "always open files of this type with this program" or similar.

The goal is to reset what windows is doing with files using the .torrent extension. Let me know if the torrent opens this way once you do that.

I use uTorrent 1.8.2 and FF3.0.7 without any problems (XP SP3).
FYI,

just stick with stable 1.7.7 and be done with it!


Well I upgrading after being sick and tired of all the prompts

then turn the update prompt off!!

in utorrent > options > preferences > general > uncheck "check for updates automatically"


most annoying of them all is the error message; can't open torrent file

that has something to do with firefox "loosing" the association between torrent files and utorrent. easy fix. tools > options > apps in firefox.

utorrent is by far the torrent client for windows. again i still use 1.7.7

biggest problem was nod 32- much better not to let utorrent run as browser with that security program
buggy installation resulted in "utorrent renaming files and then reloading them--back to normal after un- selecting
firefox association is strange as latest version as won't associate and won't allow to go to temp file but I'll finger that one out when I get more time!
thanks for the advice all!

Works fine for me. No issues. Been using it since the update came out.
