Today I downloaded the new uTorrent client version from http://www.utorrent.com/downloads/complete/os/win/track/stable

Version: 3.5.0.43804
Size: 1 733 104 bytes
MD5: 87c83933801f5a5589b8fff7f8691a02

And when trying to start it, it displays the following message:

Warning
This application requires administrative privileges to run. Please login as administrator and try again.

All I can do now is to press the OK button, and that's it, i.e. uTorrent doesn't even start.

I must note, that for the last 5 years (or longer) I've never ran uTorrent under administrative account, and it ran just fine.  This is the first version with which I have this problem.  And, damn fcuk, when I downloaded this new version I've deleted the old version, and now can't use bittorrent at all.

I have the same problem. Rolled back to previous build (43580).

I am using uTorrent in a portable mode.

 

BTW, uTorrent keeps backup of previous builds in updates folder.

It's been three months, and nothing has changed.

This is not ok.

 

Also of note is that beta 44050 does not require admin rights, but then release 44090 does require admin rights.

Sounds weird to me... Have you confirmed the exe does not need to "unblocked" in properties?

I suggest you re-test with latest build - 44210 stable, since 44090 seems  to have some release issues:
