Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

I had no problem whatsoever downloading before Monday's update.

1. I would left click on the link.
2. Choose open file in the add download screen.
3. Hit ok and a 30 second launch would appear. I could either wait the 30 seconds or launch it earlier.
4. Then a Azureus pop up would appear and tell me my file was now downloading.
5. It would appear on my Azureus dashboard and in my designated desktop file.

Now I get nothing after step 2 that is similar to before. I have seen a screen that says " Could not open'attachment.php'. It doesn't appear to be a .torrent file"

Can anyone help.

Thanks.

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

are you on a PC?

go to My Computer
click on Tools>folder options
click on File Types Tab
scroll down to .torrent
click on it, highlighting
click on change in the "opens with" areas and browse to the Azureus .exe file


I think it's a program association problem.
Try to redo it and see if it works even if it is there currently.
If that checks out and it still doesn't work, post back here.


also let me know what browser you are using. could be a browser setting.

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

In step 2, are you talking about a pop-up box that appears where you get a choice to open in an Application or to Download the file? Do you get that box at all?

He's using IE and doesn't know computers real well. So, the more specific the answer, the easier for him to fix.

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

I am unfamiliar with the 30 second launch you are talking about in step 3, also. That must be some new IE security feature. I've been using firefox for many years and haven't played with IE recently.

Are you on Vista or XP? and what version of Internet Explorer are you using?

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

I did what you suggested Saltman. I tried a SRV show and the torrent file appeared in the desktop folder. The following link seems to be downloading for me now. It was different from what I was used to but it works.

It is a Add Download screen with the URL info at the top.

Then 3 choices for download type...save file, open file, or save file and open.
Then your save to folder info.

OK, it's similar to what I get. My first choice is Open in Application (and you can click on Application to choose one), then Download as File, and I forget what the last one is. It sounds like you got it to work with Download as File? If you did, then you might try changing it to Open in Application, choose Azurues, and see if it now does what you want.

Thanks to both of you for all your help.

If it wasn't 10 degrees there would be a monitor shaped hole in my front window.

I'm trying like hell to get a screen shot up here.

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

I have IE 7. How do I check if IE is blocking downloads from this site?

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

you are not blocked - after clicking on a torrent - you're getting the correct pop up window.
=====================================================================
try this:

close Azureus
find the torrent you wish
click the torrent file
choose open

(azureus should then launch & begin your download)

if another program opens = bad.
if you are presented with a list of programs (because it doesnt know what to do with the file)
find Azureus in the list presented & check 'always use this program'.

if that doesnt work - uninstall azureus & reinstall azureus.... or download utorrent.

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

Thanks Wolf. We tried the uninstall/reinstall.

There seems to be a problem with "attachment .php" It doesn't recognize it.

In the pop up window right below where you designate the save to folder there is a box "Generate a file name automatically" and right below that a "save as" designater which says attachment.php. Do I leave that box unchecked and the save as (as attachment.php)?

I'm going to try closing Azereus and see what happens.

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

Like I said before, it used to be that the name of the file to download was "downloadtor.php" and now it is "attachment.php". A simple change to the file name should not cause the problems. Somewhere in your preferences you had set it up to be fine with the name "downloadtor.php" and so now you need to do the same thing with "attachment.php".

Did you ever say what version of IE you are running? There is probably an "About IE" or something like that under one of the tabs on the top of your browser.

Re: Azureus 3.0.3.4 Questions and Problems

The torrent went to the desktop and Azureus opened it and came up with a pop up box saying "Could not open 'attachment.php' It doesn't appear to be a .torrent file" I can't screen print what I am seeing but I have an idea.

Here is the shit I am getting.

utorrent sound like my next step. Thanks!!
