uTorrent v2.x/3.x - Best Practice Tips

Recommended Posts

Yes, but you have to install their download manager to get the file.

It works fine...All you need to do is click next to where it says Download:>tray.ico on top of the page.

but it's .ICO file format, not .EXE... :rolleyes:

You hosting site ask to use his own EXE/downloader to get it free. I know all about this trick...

edit:

OK, got it. 1.7M is too much for the 1M uT program...

[...]1.7M is too much for the 1M uT program...

Is this a joke...? :P

1MB it's only in "compressed state" on HDD, when it's running in "uncompressed state", it takes more than 10-20MB RAM, mine 50MB for example ;)

But if you care about size, you can always use the original one made by Blackice (thread here).

I modified this icon a little to get more versions of sizes as I also use it for torrent files associated with µTorrent (maindoc.ico) and for main program icon (main.ico).

So if you want to use it only for tray icon (tray.ico), download the original.

End of offtopic ;d

Thanks for hearing my rant...

Too big, too black, too big. And on a 1080p standard display resolution - you need ~16 pixels for a tray icon ... So, no deal ;)

Anyways, issue solved in 3.3.1 29963... so we are too late...

And people complain about BitTorrent Inc being deceptive.

Guilty as charged and I stand by what I say...

The installation of unwanted crap for most users is not straight forward for not one but two pieces of crap!....:D

Have you read the list of incompatible software in the User Manual??

This thread should have been locked along time ago!

Why? Don't you want me to update the tips/guide?... Does anyone else around here has a similar-updating topic? Plus, I use it to notify people that are subscribed here on changes in the tips. That is if you don't mind...

Thanks - but I can't even get uTorrent to open to get to the user manual.

You don't need to, just open %appdata%/utorrent then double click the .chm (Compiled HTML Help) file.
