3.5.x Beta

Well, looks to me that uT process is  "entitled" to handle it's own auto-run/install registry settings (since it is acting also as  it's own installer when you update a build) , so again, false positive...  Maybe you should alert/report  this to M$... :) 

PS: maybe double-check if the exe was "unblocked" in properties (=safe)...

There is a problem while translating this new text, as well as in the last beta build 44266 as in the stable one 44294:

"Your license key file has been saved as %s in your Documents directory. Keep track of this — you may need it to reactivate."

Problem makes the "—" sign --> this should be replaced with the standard "-" sign to work.

Here is my log-file which I get: http://www.should.keepfree.de/div/utorrent.exe.log.zip

The problem is that you cannot just replace your old exe , and if using a standalone location (with settings.dat) - that installer will not  "just run" as before ... :(

I needed to manually extract the "that "real" uT (called Carrier.exe) inside that archive/installer). Do you think it is better that way? Surely more complicated...

What new client?

There was mention of it becoming a "browser" type client:

https://torrentfreak.com/utorrent-will-move-to-the-web-browser-170421/

People will then stick with their current version - I know many, many people still use 2.2.1 or less anyway regardless of 3.5 being available - or move on to another client.

I certainly wouldn't want any sort of browser-style client - I'll stick with the stand-alone version.

My version is quite old (3.5.1 b44321) but the one thing that they seem to have ignored is the type of adverts they serve up. I don't mind adware if the product does what I want it to do. But the last few beta releases I've used over the last couple of years have sent my Malware Bytes into a frenzy with "Malicious Website Blocked" constantly popping up while uT is running. It's definitely uT because as soon as I stop it, the pop-ups stop.

Fair enough if you have ad-supported software but at least be mindful of the quality of what you serve up. I'm seriously thinking of going back to an earlier version of uT or even a different client.

The problem I get is the more recent the version, the more and more malicious website [blocked] warnings I get from Malware Bytes with the advertising uT is trying to deliver. When I run it now, my screen barely spends a second without a pop-up being on the screen until I exit uT. Which is why I download what I want and run rather than leaving stuff seeding; it's  waay to intrusive when it runs.

I realise this is not what torrent sharing is all about and I'm ashamed to admit to such selfish practices. That's why I'm seriously thinking of back-tracking to an earlier version (less warnings).

My hosts file has hundreds of entries that have accumulated over the years but as fast as I add them, uT is delivering even more new ones.

As for tweaking some entries, it does seem a shame that all new uT installs reset most of these to poke adverts at us and we have to go thru them all over again. It gets tiresome and annoying keep doing it. Why does uT keep resetting them on every new install?? Perhaps there should be an option to store such entries elsewhere (INI file??) rather than having them ebedded within the program. Add the fact I can't move/reseize the program panes makes the display totally crap these days.

Even worse now that we can't just copy the EXE over the old one and just run it like we used to. I don't see why we have to extract the real program from the installer to stop this ludicrous behaviour; there should be different download options for this (installer and program only).

The whole uT experience is getting worse with every new release, both beta and stable versions.
