can't open containing folder in Utorrent


Recommended Posts

some tracker forced people to update to the 1.7.6 version becuase of the security thread, since I updated it doesn't work anymore, I deleted the dat.old files & setting.dat, downloaded a new torrent none of it helps, double clicking and ENTER does neither. Double clicking is enable & open containing folder isn't greyed out, you just seed the sandglass loading and then nothing happens.

Anyone else having this problem.

THNX in advance

EDIT I even deleted the entire application data folder an still nothing when loading a new torrent and I waited for completion still noting. I downloaded the stable version from the official Utorrent website.

EDIT EDIT even weirder when I put one exe in a seperate map and put and empty setting.dat file in there even then I can't open the containing folder.

In order for "open containing folder" to work, 1) you need to have a torrent selected 2) you need to have part(all) of that file on disk 3) the torrent has to be on a currently mapped drive

What about that isn't working? Please provide a Process Explorer (get it from sysinternals.com) DLL list for utorrent.exe (download zip, unzip, open procexp.exe, Ctrl-L, Ctrl-D, click utorrent.exe, Ctrl-A, copy-paste below).

Unfortunatly some of it is in dutch, but don't think that matters.

Off course your 3 points work, cause I opend a new torrent waited for completion and could'nt open and then opened the files anyway via explorer and off course I selected a torrent otherwise you wouldn't see the "open containing folder" at all.

;) Yup. Indeed the Dutch text is due to the different IME, but doesn't matter since the DLLs are standard no matter the language. Nothing but WindowsBlinds is injected into uT, and I don't THINK that is a reported problem.. only object dock is a reported problem according to http://utorrent.com/faq.php#Incompatible_software. As far as the menu not doing anything...it's possible something happened to explorer. After you remove/except ObjectDock you could try adding utorrent.exe to WB's exceptions temporarily to see if that's it. :/ That's my only idea.

Hmm Dutch, and uhm.. Norse?? are two of the coolest languages I've heard people speak. Compared to finnish or swedish though, they have uhm... double vowels?? Being a native english speaker means that's a COMPLETELY foreign idea and as such sounds a bit off.

Actually the objectdock you see is part of AlienGuisse, maybe that's why my window has never freezed(always used 1.6) and it says "You should no longer experience this with the latest version of µTorrent."

And I'm sorry but what do you mean with adding utorrent.exe to WB's exeptions, what's WB, and I've had objectdock longer than utorrent, only with 1.7.6 the problems started.

About the dutch language, sometimes seem boring to me, but I can understand the double vowel, your "damn movies & sports" have made the english language far to popular with me.

I don't know why it would suddenly appear in 1.7.6 :/ I would ask you though to isolate Windows Blinds and Object Dock from utorrent.exe right now to see if those specific programs are what it doesn't get along with :/

Moving on from there, can you try removing the rules for BitDefender and recreating them (my post gives an elaborate procedure for verifying things which you don't really need, though I did try to be precise in explaining process of elimination for software incompatibilities) ... Also be advised NetLimiter has been reported to cause troubles due to its packet delaying... Can you try removing them from the equation one-by-one? ;)

Sorry for the delayed response, I uninstalled netlimeter and the dll was gone, didn''t help though, I don't know how to isolate WB & objetc dock from utorrent since i don't wanna uninstall them. I did open utorrent holding crtl which disables WB, the dll's remained though as well as the not opening of the folder. The tracker allowed us to swich back to 1.6 & 1.6.1 but doesn't work anymore(the open cont... folder) So offiously it isn't just someting in 1.7.6. Problem probably lies with me, it is strange though that 1.6 has now the same problem it never used to have. I did NOT download anything in between, installed no programs & no viruses present.

RECAP: I am saying problem probably occured since installing 1.7.6 (pherhaps during & because of)

- 1.7.7 not working either

- 1.4 - does work (can't use that but I'm just saying)

NO, and about the registry thing I rather not mess with that, all my exe's are working fine. Once again it seems highly unlikly that it's because of 1.7.6, but ever since I don't get it to work anymore not even the 1.6 I always used() not even when put in an isolated map with an empty settinngs.dat
