  1. Disabling UAC on Windows 8 does not fully disable it, unlike with Win7. You're still running in LUA mode. You can technically disable it, but then it breaks the Store/Metro apps completely (if you care). If you explicitly run µTorrent as Admin, it is possible to do fast allocation again. Again, definitely keep your cache size lower than 1024MB.
  2. Okay. So, on Windows 8, it's not possible to do fast allocation of files, since it requires the admin token. You might as well turn on pre-allocate to take the penalty at the beginning of the torrent instead of randomly in the middle. RAID1 is pretty slow for writes (usually a little slower than a single disk), so that's not going to help your performance too much.
  3. What version of Windows are you running on right now? 7 or 8.1? You probably still want to keep the cache size smaller, below 1024MB. Also, you can turn on the 'pre-allocate files' option in the settings still. This will cause overload near the beginning since the client will be busy allocating every single file (writing zeroes).
  4. It's pretty curious that you're getting Windows ran out of memory error. Does that only happen when you set the larger cache sizes?
  5. What is your cache size set to? Going above 128MB is usually counter-productive.
  6. Re-enable the windows system cache and uncheck "write out untouched blocks every 2 minutes".
  7. Stop obsessing over Windows using cache memory. It's not a memory leak.
  8. They're test builds. You aren't supposed to get a direct link to them.
  9. Yep, we've updated it again! And we've made it easier for us to push new versions of utserver on our site, so it'll be much easier to have future updates posted.
  10. I already pointed it out to the devs yesterday when I uploaded the strings. There will be a re-up today or Monday with the fixed strings.
  11. Windows uses memory for caching. Just stop fretting.
  12. right click on the node and hide it. Still, it should be auto-removed, I think.
  13. They're both out of date. I just updated them, though. If you use the one in the help menu, you should get an updated copy.
  14. Lower your cache size. Try not to go above 1GB. A cache that size doesn't really help anyway.
  15. Yeah. And those should probably be deleted automatically.
  16. Read the first post, dude.
  17. Yes, that's the whole reason for 3.4. Can't be installed in Program Files to do autoupdates without UAC.
  18. 3.2.2 stable here https://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=126812
  19. 3.2.2 here: https://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=126812
  20. +1= using updated 3.2.x.chm help file That should be fixed now, but you might need to delete the existing utorrent-help.zip in %AppData%\uTorrent
  21. It only changed the display name, not the internal name. If you had the setting off before, it should stay off.
  22. If this were true' date=' then no matter what version of uTorrent I would use, I would still be banned. Obviously they have updated the "whitelist" or else I would be banned no matter what uTorrent version I used. This only happends with 3.2.2 (RC1) AND 3.3 alpha. After I downgrade to 3.2.1, its fixed and it says working as it should be. I have a feeling it has something to do with this: -9 Change: Randomized Peer ID might not suit some private sites. An option is needed to enable/disable it [/quote'] nope, your tracker hasn't updated the whitelist to allow 3.2.2. and that option doesn't apply to private torrents anyway.
  23. Um. Your screenshot is of a single-file torrent...
  24. For those of you that use µTorrent Remote (our service to remotely control your client from anywhere), we've just launched a beta client for Windows Phone 8. Check it out! http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=687726#p687726
  25. The latest build is 28203. Can you run that and see if you get a startup crash?
