Windows help file repo

Recommended Posts

Hello. This post is for everyone who is tired of the utorrent help files not being up-to-date.

I've just uploaded the help file sources to a public repo on github.

https://github.com/bittorrent/utorrent_help

If there's anything that bugs you in the help file, *you* now have the power to change it.

* Install cygwin

* Pull this repo: https://github.com/bittorrent/utorrent_help

* Put [ 7z.exe 7z.dll hhc.exe ] into the utorrent_help directory

* Send me a pull request with your changes

That's it!

I'll get our team working on this.

Are they done yet? Because the rest of the help file is ready and waiting for them... :)

Because when I made the build script, I used cygwin. Batch is horrible, and if you wanna do any scripting work on Windows, cygwin's the way to do it. :P

Apologies, I never did bother to come up with a proper build process for the thing. Always compiled the thing manually with *gasp* the HTML Help Workshop GUI!

Batch may be horrible, but it has no dependencies! I can't imagine a build script for this file requiring anything sophisticated enough that something as heavy as cygwin is a must, but to each their own :)

I expect nothing less than *fully*... ;)
your help file link says: "The file you requested has been blocked for a violation of our Terms of Service. "

Seems fine from here, probably some Mediafire think. I've hosted it in another location just to make sure...
