  1. It might. Just try running it normally... It elevates itself.

    well' date=' tuesday morning i decided to wipe the system clean and i installed win7 sp1 x64 instead of x86... but the problem still remains after i configured the limited account.

    -- 2012-05-11: Version 3.1.3 stable (build 27213)

    - Fix: UAC prompt would show up for limited users on every run

    I even installed 27213 but it still asks for UAC elevation so i fired up sysinternals Procmon and i think i might see why:

    utorrent is asking for full access rights in some places where it only needs read access, not full write access

    20:26:47,5232146 uTorrent.exe 3784 RegOpenKey HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock2\Parameters REPARSE Desired Access: All Access

    20:26:47,5232436 uTorrent.exe 3784 RegOpenKey HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock2\Parameters ACCESS DENIED Desired Access: All Access

    and a few places down:

    20:26:47,6977312 uTorrent.exe 3784 RegOpenKey HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap ACCESS DENIED Desired Access: Read/Write

    20:26:48,6153275 uTorrent.exe 3784 RegOpenKey HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\Cache ACCESS DENIED Desired Access: Query Value, Set Value, Create Sub Key, Enumerate Sub Keys

    i think that if these accesses were created with desired access rights set to read only it would not trigger the UAC elevation

    So, you're still seeing the elevation dialog after each run, right?

  2. Seriously UTorrent devs, if you dont fix this bullshit 5 min updating that forces the internet con to drop im removing UTorrent and will use another client! Excuse my language, but having your internet drop for 5 mins every 5 mins during these updates is fucking bullshit!!!

    Again, im a full time torrenter of 5 years and never had this problem until i updated to 3.1.3

    The problem isn't the client. It's your router.

  3. New build up with the connection fix.

    What were the conditions uT was losing connections? I didn't notice that :(

    -- 2012-05-09: Version 3.2 beta (build 27191)

    - Change: rewritten UPnP code backported from 3.3

    I get : "[2012-05-10 07:40:41] recvfrom ERROR: 10035" when I enable uPnP :(

    If the first torrent had no successful connections, it'd set itself into a state where it would stop trying to make connections completely.

  4. No changelog again... wow... this is becoming annoying.

    27167... should i bother with this when i get home? i wonder if asking for admin rights on Win7sp1 x86 has been fixed yet.

    i'm currently @work' date=' on an XPSP3 x86 system but it's not showing that error when starting as limited user even with software restriction policies active.

    I reported this issue with win7 on page 5 of this thread (post #118), uT was then at build 27060.

    on page 10 of this thread, another user seems to have hit the same bug, post #245 by vovash

    and he does the same thing as me, replaces the executable manually in program files. The only difference i can see is that he uses win7 x64 while i use x86.

    since then, i last tried tried running on win7 as admin from a different directory and letting the built-in installer do its thing thinking that maybe it needed to update some registry settings and would not reach that point if it detected it was already being run from program files.

    After the installer completed successfully, the first time i tried to run it as a regular user, it asked AGAIN for admin rights. :(

    ... i deleted 27120 and went back to 26837, that one doesn't have this annoying (and potentially unsafe) behavior.[/quote']

    Once the admin token is set on the file by Windows, it probably won't go away. Delete the executable in program files, DON'T COPY IT THERE BY HAND, and let the installer do its thing.

    27167 does not offer any user-visible changes, just minor installer tweaks.

  5. Uh' date=' that's not a bug... it just says it hashed that much data.[/quote']

    Why 3.x is a lot of disk read for hashing?

    hashing bytes = disk read bytes

    So high disk load.

    Is this normal?

    I am using 2.0.4. And it does not do such a thing.

    Hashing is not necessarily read bytes from DISK. Even if it's hashed from the cache, I believe it still shows up there.
