NAT error, systray icon and start with Windows


Recommended Posts

Strange thing.

If I start uTorrent manually, everything is working:

- no NAT error

- good speed

- the icone in the systray is here

When I set it up to start with Windows (start uTorrent on system stratup) then I got problems:

- I got NAT error and keep getting it until I restart it.

- There is NO icone in the system tray and no way to switch to it, only possible to kill it in the process list.

- OR you can just kill the explorer process and start a new one, then the icone is back at it's place.

Seems it's starting to fast and doesn't get in the explorer list for the systray.

yep, connected behind a router with port forwarding, no Windows firewall (but zone alarm).

Problem is not the NAT error. If I start Utorrent after windows manually, then no issue at all.

If I set it to start at windows startup, then I got the NAT error. I seems uTorrent is starting to fast before Windows finish his setup (and may be this is also why the icone is not in the systray).

I'm having the exact same problem. Autostart equals missing tray icon and NAT error, but manual start is all good.

I'm running µ on a XP SP2 server, AVG Resident Shield, XP firewall and a few minor programs in tray. I had this problem with build 426, but just changed to 428. I'll report back if the update solves the problem..

Just noticed I had a similar prob to this tonight, when, for the first time, I set utorrent to start at syst startup. After syst reboot, got the red light and "Unable to open windows firewall" "Unable to map UPnP..." Unlike others in this thread, I did have the syst tray icon though.

Starting manually everything is fine.

I normally refuse to have any 3rd party app autostart, but the other night, after leaving utorrent running, the power had gone out here due to a storm, and when I returned, there was of course no longer any download/upload activity(~sigh~so much time wasted). I tried setting PG2 and utorrent to autostart, but unfortunately, there seems to be a problem.

Anything I can do? I've realized how handy autostart can be for utorrent.
