  1. OK, I get it now, it's telling me how much SPARE [FREE] SPACE is avail on that drive! I thought it was telling me how much space the torrent would take up in disk-space [multiples of clusters/stripes vs raw byte size]. Duh! Maybe the caption should be "Available Disk Space"? Yeah, I assumed WAY too much, sorry...
  2. Just noticed something in 45852... the add torrent dialog "torrent content" area [right-side] has a "size" line that says torrent's dl size and then "(disk space:xxx)". xxx is always 1.25 TB . Thats a bug! it even says 1.25 TB when it doesn't have the .torrent file yet... just spotted that, probably been there for years, not important really but amusing...
  3. Yeah, that's why you want to use the 2 mb size version without the wrapper-installer. Just rename the small guy to utorrent.exe and overwrite the old with the new and launch it directly from its normal location [%appdata%\utorrent], it'll self-update with no fuss at all. If you launch the small guy from another location it will redo its [minimal] install , asking a few questions before overwriting itself, and you might loose a few settings but not many, it preserves your setup. But it's easiest to just overwrite it yourself and avoiding any sort of install at all. BTW, to find the small guy inside of large one, open the large one with 7zip; you'll see within a file called "carrier.exe", that's the small guy, everything else is "the installer" crap, which often offers up shareware...just extract carrier.exe, rename to utorrent.exe and do the overwrite - voila...you're updated...with all your settings intact [important if you turned off all the ads.] I've been overwritting for years and never once seen an ad or any shareware... Always look for the 2 mb size, or extract it yourself from the 4mb wrapper...
  4. one more thing, not to be a nudge... I have the tool to set the LAA flag [from ntcore named 4gb_patch.exe] and have used it before. when I use it on the orig carrier file from ex58 I get a diff file than from you; the tool sets the LAA flag AND ALSO UPDATES THE CHECKSUM in the second optional header [according to PE Deconstructor and WinMerge], but yours only set the LAA flag in the first header, the checksum remains unchanged. I'm not really sure what effect that actually has on the Windows loader, if it objects to the checksum missmatch or not; it clearly does launch the exe without an error dialog. I'm not even sure the 2nd header checksum actually even covers the first header, but the tool does update it, and that tool has been around for years and years, they must have had a reason for doing it, perhaps wrongly! Just thought I'd ask... ALSO... [ yeah, more ] both versions above do not verfy when examined by Process Explorer, which is expected since the image was changed and the bittorrent signature was not; totally expected...
  5. yeah, I followed the original link in the quoated text, not the link in your footer, sorry...
  6. rafi, that INSTALLER has LAA set, but embedded carrier.exe does not... ahh, I guess you meant to follow the link in your footer, sorry...
  7. "Enable protocol enhancements" setting causes settings variable "wallet_integration_enabled" to be set to true, which allows Tron and BitTorrent Token (BTT) to use BitTorrent Speed, a monetized exchange mechanism (you get "paid" for participating). The "W" is for Wallet. Search for "BitTorrent Speed" and read all about it...
  8. yeah, the folder does exist. rt click on the FILE'S LINE [in file tab] and choose open destination and it works right, but right click on the TORRENT LINE [in main pane] and it open's my docs...
  9. new bug in 45714: when double clicking a completed torrent [to open its folder] it now opens My Documents intead of the torrent's folder. new in 45714 I think. FYI, the torrent's properties lists the dir path correctly, and it is filled properly with the files, nothing was actually saved into My Docs. FYI, this particular torrent only had SOME of its files selected for download. As a test, I choose all files and set them to priority=normal -- and IT WORKED properly when ALL files were done dl'ing. So, maybe not new in 45714, maybe an esoteric case, tho I havn't seen it before and I do often only DL selected files in a package... Later... attempts to duplicate this with different torrent failed, it worked just fine...hum... btw, search drop-down menu positioning bug is fixed. also could not duplicate "reset history" clears UPnP port forward issue, thats seems to work fine now too; my guess it may be a race condition wth my router's UPnP cmd stack. Later Still... OK here's a test case that does fail consistently: use ctl-O and this hash A885CF05B3729D6B7431E3B456329FDF84ECE691 click Select None button and then check just the first file, track 3 then click OK Let it finish dl'ing track 3 and it'll notify that the torrent is done double click the torrent line [or rt-click Open Containing Folder] and it'll open My Docs insted of the true destination folder. THERE! So, wierd huh...
  10. I just noticed it... [W7 btw...]
  11. another bug in 45710: when doing a "reset history" in options | prefs | transfer cap page, the port forward [via UPnP] in the router goes away, thus all incoming stops. Doing it a second time seems to bring it back tho. interesting...
  12. re 45710, new search has bug, drop-down menu appears way off to the left and up in corner of screen rather than at the down-arrow location. This is in win 7. Also it's rather distracting sitting smack in the middle of the tile bar, looked better right justified as before.
  13. I tested the direct from UT version 0f _45553 and it no longer has the problem either. re: sizes, I examined both and all I see is ut version has an RCDATA resource that mike's does not, and the segments have different offsets (duh). mike's build is not including something... but mike's build in not one of those newer and much larger "installer types" that has the embedded CARRIER.EXE original, which I always extract and discard the wrapper.
  14. FWIW, _45533 beta no longer exhibits the issues I had under Win 7 [prefs | advanced | filter_box] with prior two betas. Fixed! [in Mike's maglink version at least].] I think mike's versions all always smaller since he builds them compressed and UT only bothers to compress non-betas. Anyway all betta now...
  15. I'm on Win 7 still. It starts going wonky when you backspace the filter entry, both stated versions do it, 45449 works solid. As a test type "btfs" then backspace it out, pow. the release notes said they fixed multiple memory leaks, this sounds like another one to me...
