1.8 Single file magnet URI downloads broken in build 11730 and upwards


Recommended Posts

Steps to reproduce:

1) Start utorrent.11730.exe or 1.8 stable in default configuration

2) Add Torrent from URL -> magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ec0f733ae83fe2a893b0c09993b639d8cb591df4&tr=http://xabin.mine.nu:3335/announce

Expected result - utorrent would start downloading something with an empty file/job name and eventually fail with "Error: The system cannot find the path specified."


[2008-08-10 xx:24:50] Finished receiving metadata for ''

[2008-08-10 xx:25:27] Error opening "C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\Downloads\":

The same test would not fail with Release Candidate 7 (build 11705).


Some issues when downloading torrent via magnet link:


2. subdirectory is not created for torrent with multiple files.

- Fix: create folder for multi file torrents, with magnet URI downloads

And here's a fixed build:


- Fix: adding directory for multifile torrents in addition to default save path

this bug seems to be related (i.e. singlefiles broken while fixing this one) and I cannot confirm it was fixed - 1.8 stable still dumps files from mutifile magnet downloads to the root of the default download folder.

URI for multifile test: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:589fd1c252c9e42a32c08ec346b8632bc35cf484&tr=http://tracker.datorrents.com:6969/announce

+ another report for both bugs in the 1.8 release topic

- Fix: create folder for multi file torrents, with magnet URI downloads

Not working for me. Subdirectory is created when downloading torrent file as usual but not when downloading via magnet link.

Similar problem with single file torrents - downloaded file is named incorrectly.
