I keep going back to version 45798  (LAA)

I tried 45822 and 45826 .. but both are crashing on me. 

 

I don't recall having any problems with 45798 (LAA).

I'll check

Edit: I don't see anything wrong, except the misspelled file-version name.... You can always compare to the original, see just the single flag changed.

Must be something else changed in it that effects you. Maybe it needs- re-excluding in your A/V & defender... ;P

I've been using latest betas (from this thread) + LAA patch for the last couple of weeks. No more crashes for me. (Once it automatically updated itself, before I could apply LAA patch, and it immediately brought back frequent crashes.) So, LAA seems to really solve the crashing problem, at least to me!

Now there's a slightly different problem. Every once a while (approximately once a day) the window hangs. It does not look like a crash. The symptoms are visually different, and it happens much less frequently. (Without LAA patch, the application crashes every 5-10 minutes at me.) So, I think it's a whole different issue.

I've tried playing with disk cache settings and disabling DHT, it does not seem to help. So, I'm yet to see what other settings I may change trying to isolate the hang issue.

A long list might be a problem . Does control-A on it - hangs uTorrent? You can try with my settings (@sig). Also, replacing updates\<version>\utorrentie.exe with a 0 bytes readonly text file with the name  can help to lower memory, but just a bit...

This link still downloads 3.5.5.45798.

...and after installing from the former link, it gives you the following greeting:

You've just been upgraded to uTorrent version 3.5.5.1.45828!

yay five-part product versions!

Funny thing is, the installer seems to be large address aware already. Apparently, it's compiled with LAA flag from the get-go! While the actual uTorrent executable (laid down by installer) is still not LAA.

Trying to use http://download-new.utorrent.com/uuid/b8b31ca1-a8bc-447f-af78-dcf2d2d1e37b gets a new Window Defender message:

PUA: Win32/Puasson.A!ml

However, the date against it is an old one. 6/09/2020 12:51pm

It is LAA related. C:\Users\...\uTorrent_LAA.exe

Just seems odd that these LAA-related issues have only recently come up. Of course, that could just be Windows waking up to the existence of something

Yeah, Defender seems to be very unhappy about uTorrent. Here's the list of threats being detected.

  • EUS:Win32/Graphez!cl
  • PUA:Win32/Pearfoos.A!ml
  • PUA:Win32/uTorrent

The last one is understood and expected. The other two are not. They very well may be false positives, but I'd say the team needs to do something about it long-term.

No, the installer is not LAA aware.  If you try to set the flag on the installer, the installer fails.  I am running the LAA version of 3.5.5.45828 and it works PERFECTLY (so far).  Here are screenshots of my Utorrent stats.  I am showing them so people know what loads Utorrent is capable of handling.

You might need to re-exclude it in Windows Defender/Security ...

I've updated my LAA links with it. FYI.

Whoops!  Yes.. I just fixed that.   I am running the LAA version of 45828.... and THAT is working perfectly.  The 5mb installer of 45828 is NOT the LAA version.  I am running the 45828 LAA version as Rafi discovered the fix.    I've always wondered why none of the actual programmers read the forums?  Do they speak English?  I can do any language they want.  উটৰেৰে ট'ৰেণ্টডাঙৰ ঠিকনা অৱগত কৰক!   Направи Utorrent голям адрес наясно!  要utorrent大地址知道!  Maak utorrent groot adres bewust!  Ua utorrent loj qhov chaw nyob paub!  آدرس بزرگ utorrent آگاه!  جعل أوتورنت عنوان كبير على علم!  Machen Sie utorrent große Adresse bewusst!  Сделать utorrent большой адрес известно!  Utorrent বড় ঠিকানা সচেতন করুন!  Meentik utorrent nojoch dirección consciente!   Utorrent te wāhitau nui kia tūpato!

I keep adding torrents, and I'm currently at 2813 torrents total.

Unfortunately, it looks like even with LAA, the latest versions (including 45828) do crash seldomly. It's much better than without LAA, but still inconvenient.

It looks that it typically happens when I leave machine unattended for a long time, many torrents finish downloading and start seeding. If I keep an eye on it and stop seeding every torrent shortly after it finishes downloading, uTorrent never crashes or hangs.

Maybe it's finally time for a native 64-bit version. It would be able to operate memory much more efficiently.

Which OS ? 32/64 bit? How much RAM and active SWAP file size? How much cache is defined in uTorrent?

Windows 10 (latest version) 64-bit. 14 GB RAM. The page file is set to automatic value, and it's currently 14 GB as well.

(Even though it looks like the system is not really using it very heavily. Typically, only <100 MB of the page file is used.)

uTorrent cache is not overridden. (Both “override automatic cache size” and “reduce memory usage” checkboxes are cleared.)

I assume the application should do the right thing automatically. I have tried other values (e.g. 200 or 1800) but there were still issues.

(Honestly, maybe these issues, crashes and hangs, happened less often when I have “override automatic cache size” selected. I'm still trying to experiment with different settings to see if there's any pattern.)

Was not sure where else to post as troubleshooting forum seems to not be active. Since the update of 3.5.5, my downloads disappear as soon as they are done. I have searched my entire server and the files are not there. Any ideas?

I'm running the Large Address Aware modified version of your version 45838 above.. and so far it is working perfectly.  I notice that the EXE file is slightly smaller than the previous version, which indicates that the program has been "cleaned up".

@joshace: As I can see on the translation text the build 45838 needs "old" text again as was for version 45776 or 45798 - so your statement is not correct. It seems that just something is tested, but not based on the last builds 45826 or 45828.

Hello,

I posted this in a separate thread last Saturday, but it's still pending moderator approval, so I'll try my luck here ;)

As far as I've seen, uTorrent 3.5.5 has at least three different peer_id prefixes associated with it: -UT355S-, -UT355W-, and -UT355B- (beta versions only). This makes me wonder the following things.

  1. What do the letters stand for? "B" is obviously for Beta; "S" is presumably Stable (or Solid :)), what about "W"? My guesses are either Windows or Web.
  2. When exactly is "UT355W" used instead of "UT355S"?

Thanks in advance for any replies!
