When trying to download torrent from magnet link or manually...

uTorrent Error Message:

Unable to load "announce":unable to parse magnet URI!

No magnet links will load from any torrents anywhere. Cannot manually add torrents. Restart Windows XP, restart uTorrent - no change. Cannot download torrents any longer.

The magnet URI for BT needs to have the <info-hash> parameter.

Example: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:76a36f1d11c72eb5663eeb4cf31e351321efa3a3&dn=WikiLeaks_insurance&tr=udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce&tr=udp://tracker.publicbt.com:80/announce&tr=udp://tracker.ccc.de:80/announce

All the other parameters are optional (like dn and tr).

So if the website providing the magnet URIs forgets to add <info-hash>, µT is not able to parse the URI.
