Process starts - GUI frontend window does not display.

I've ran uTorrent for a few months now on my Windows Home Server without major issue. This is the first time I've come across this problem so I'd rather ask for help here rather than wipe out/reinstall uTorrent.

uT is set to autostart. I can see it's started within Task Manager & Process Explorer. I get the following error message when I try and (re)start uTorrent from the executable...


I'm reading my way through this forum to see if my issue has already been resolved. Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

Thanks for the assistance, Moogly.

Nope, this problem didn't develop after an update.

I did have a reboot kill uTorrent, rather than uTorrent exit gracefully prior to a reboot.

If I login as another account uTorrent will start just fine, except without all the torrents I had loaded into my primary account.


I downloaded v. 3.0 build 25406 and ran it in place of 2.2.x

Somehow this fixed the issue. Up until the fix I had been running uTorrent v

Upon start, it loaded up each of the torrents I had been seeding with the previous version, one-by-one.
