logoµTorrent Portable 3.3.0.29082 has been released by PortableApps.com. µTorrent is the world's most popular BitTorrent client. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet). This release updates µTorrent to the latest release. It's packaged as a portable app so you download on the go and it's in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. It's released as freeware for personal and business use.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the PortableApps.com Platform.

Features

ScreenshotµTorrent is the world's most popular BitTorrent client. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet). Additionally, µTorrent supports the Protocol Encryption joint specification (compatible with Azureus 2.4.0.0 and above, BitComet 0.63 and above) and peer exchange.

µTorrent was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources - typically using less than 6MB of memory, allowing you to use the computer as if it weren't there at all.

Various icon, toolbar graphic and status icon replacements are available, and creating your own is very simple. µTorrent also has support for localization, and with a language file present, will automatically switch to your system language. If your language isn't available, you can easily add your own, or edit other existing translations to improve them!

PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format

µTorrent Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.

Still unable to use this as

Still unable to use this as any new torrents are getting the same error message!

Continuation of this post.

EDIT:
Renamed Data folder to Data0,
D/l latest uTorrentPortable and reinstalled over existing,
Moved torrents and downloads to new Data folder,
Used browse function to add new torrent.

Error message still appearing? I've never had this problem before, why now? Is it a uTorrent issue? Is it just me? Could it be a 64bit issue?

Full path:

Fresh Install

Did you try a completely fresh install. As in you can't use ANYTHING from your current install (no data, no settings, no torrents, nothing).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

No I didn't yet. I just tried

No I didn't yet. I just tried adding a new random torrent and still got error!

Is the installation corrupt then? As I can't add new torrents it's not related to the current d/ls?

EDIT:
Completely fresh install produces exact same results. I d/l a random torrent and still get same error message.

EDIT:
Could it be anything to do with the settings file in AppData/Roaming?

@John as I posted before, it

@John as I posted before, it is an issue with relative paths.

Nuking the Data doesn't help.

What will fix it is setting the paths in Options > Preferences > Directories
to be absolute. The launcher will have to fix them to be portable, but hardcoding them to the current downloads folder path and readding the torrent fixes the error for me (but is not portable).

Funny you should say that...

I just tried that and it didn't work! Thanks, I was beginning to think it was just me having this problem Eye-wink

New Torrent

This fix will only fix new torrents. Your existing torrents can not be made compatible with the latest uTorrent. It seems uTorrent changes their internal structure and don't support relative paths. If this is the case, that coupled with their encryption of the settings file may prevent us from making it portable. I'll investigate. In the meantime, qBittorent still works great.

Encryption?

Didn't you mean the file format? Or are they actually encrypting the settings?

Previously known as kAlug.

Ah

I thought it was encrypted. Either way, at the moment, we can't edit it. Which means we can't portablize it. Do you have a possible fix for it?

As an aside, I switched to qBittorrent on my local machine as I got sick of the uTorrent's ads.

I looked into the

I looked into the settings.dat. It is a weird format but appears to be plain text. Maybe a replace would suffice, but I can see the relative path, as well as absolute paths I set.

It's not

There is a length field before the paths. That's the complicated part (IIRC).

I can try working on something.

Length or Hash

Is it a length check or a hash? If it's just a length, I can put out a patched version with drive letter replacement for now, at least.

Yep, seems like that number

Yep, seems like that number is the length of the string.

Some custom code will likely be needed but there doesn't seem to be anything that makes Portability impossible.

Nice!!! Looks like they're

Nice!!! Looks like they're going payware then! qbittorrent it is then, if that works!

I'm curious, after googling the error message, one site mentioned adding another user account to try running their backup from there. I tried adding a second admin account and ran uTorrent to see if the problem was indeed linked to that account.

It took longer than usual to start but kept asking me about installing uT instead of just running the app, why?

EDIT:
I've also tried again to use the backup version of uTorrent and it no longer works either.

EDIT:
I remembered I had an online backup of uTorrent (which is v3.2). I d/l it and it's currently checking the previously unfinished torrents. This is more than could be achieved with v3.3. I've changed the folder name by adding version number to avoid auto updates and installed latest version as well for future.
...v3.2(27886) works fine...

uTorrent 3.2.2 Build 28595 works fine too

I was having problems with good 'ol 2.2.1 so I tried qBittorrent and importing existing torrents wasn't going well (at all!).

So I decided to up uTorrent but saw this thread about 3.3. I tried swapping in uTorrent 3.2.2 Build 28595 from filehippo into the PortableApps App directory and bam! All is going well. Most (not all) of my 2.2.1 settings came over and all the torrents came over fine. I set btapps.app_store and btapps.apps_channel set to blank and disabled DNA to make it closer to the 2.x.

Does anyone have that 3.2.2

Does anyone have that 3.2.2 build for PAL?

Dropped Relative Path Support

Unfortunately, uTorrent now has unceremoniously dropped all support for relative paths in the settings and resume (aka active torrents) files. This means that all your existing torrents fail and your existing settings will break. You must set the download directory to X:\PathTo\uTorrentPortable\Data\downloads and the torrent path to X:\PathTo\uTorrentPortable\Data\downloads. And then go through all existing torrrents, right-click, select Advanced, select Download Location and then select X:\PathTo\uTorrentPortable\Data\downloads.

As you move PCs, the drive letter will be updated, but the full path will not. Doing so breaks the file and causes uTorrent to reset its settings. So, if you ever move relative paths, you will need to perform these steps again.

If you are looking for an alternative, qBittorrent continues to work well.

Could you eventually make the

Could you eventually make the custom code to replace the path?

Working On It

I'm working on it. Unfortunately, uTorrent has path length checks for every single path in their config file. If one is off by even a single character, the whole config file is thrown out and reset with the defaults. And the file is a proprietary mishmash format, so we can't use any standard tools with it.

For right now, you can use it with the drive letter replacement that the launcher already supports after you have reset the paths yourself within the uTorrent GUI.

uTorrent Install error

I keep getting the error "The downloaded copy of uTorrent is not valid and cannot be installed. Please try again." when i try to install utorrentPortable whether manually or through the suite. Both on windows 8 x64 and 8.1 x64.

Edit:
Just tried on win 7 x64 same error happens.
this is the steps it does taken from the log window:

Output folder: C:\Users\dekdeck\Desktop\uTorrentPortable

The downloaded copy of uTorrent is not valid and can not be installed. Please try installing again.

PC Issue

Every time this has happened previously, it's been a PC issue. It's generally either (1) a permissions issue on the TEMP directory or (2) an issue with the antivirus or software firewall. Some antivirus apps will take a long time to scan a just downloaded EXE and lock it for changes, causing all operations on it to fail. The popular, mainstream ones don't have this issue.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

No antivirus is installed on

No antivirus is installed on any of the systems.
Run as Admin gives the same error both in win 7 and 8 64bit.
The systems have no other software on them.
Both vm and host gives same error.
Same error on clean windows xp sp3 32bit.

Fine Here

And yet, it works perfectly fine here. On Windows 7, Windows XP, etc. Both with and without antivirus. So there is definitely something different where you are. Maybe you're blocked from downloading from download.portableapps.com or download2.portableapps.com.

If you'd like to create a new forum post with the complete details rather than comments on a news story, we can attempt to assist further with the specifics of your local issues. But there is nothing wrong with the installer or the files on our servers. Something is interfering with it between the server and you.

Its not working?

I would download it and the launcher would come up and what not and it says "The installer was unable to download uTorrent. The installation of the portable app will be incomplete without it. Please try installing again.(ERROR:SendRequestError)and I tried again and it still says the same thing.

Old

Only the current version is supported. Old versions have their downloads removed. This is an old version.

The current version is 3.3.2.30303 and is working properly. Generally, a SendRequest error means you are blocked form the specific download server, download2.portableapps.com in this case.
