Right click and hit "save target as". Save the torrent and open it from your hd with your client. Don't bother trying to directly open it.

Or it may be that you need to enable pop-ups for this site. The torrents pop-up a window that asks you what to do with the file (open or download the file).

Was IE7's pop up blocker, just added thetradersden.org to the allowed site list. Thanks

Re: New user - cant open torrent links in TTD.

I am having this same problem downloading a .torrent file but the suggested solutions don't seem to work for me... When I right click and save as, the File Download window does come up but no progress is made, it just continues to say "getting file info...". When I left-click instead, I get that blank Explorer window. I am running Vista... I turned off the firewalls and I added www.thetradersden.org to my allowed pop-ups list, but it doesn't seem to make a difference (doesn't look like any pop-ups are getting blocked, anyway). I feel like I must be doing something really basic incredibly wrong. Any ideas? Thanks so much.

Nevermind, problem solved - I was on the network at my college at the time, and it turns out that thing has tons of restrictions on it. I.T. confirmed that the school's network settings caused the problem. I am at home now and the downloads work.

Re: New user - cant open torrent links in TTD.

I'm glad both the posters having problems with this came back and wrote about their solution. Hopefully this thread can help someone else who may have the same problem.
