[Fixed] qBittorrent Portable seems broken

I downloaded, md5sumed and installed it successfully. When I click the menu link the splash screen comes on, goes away and nothing else seems to be happening. I'm on a fresh install of XP Pro SP3 with all the OS updates. Nothing have been installed excluding the "Windows Update" site installed updates and my copied World of Warcraft program folder on my Z partition.

Can't reproduce immediately, possible DLL missing

I can't reproduce this immediately in Wine; from the situation, missing dependencies (MSVCRT most likely) seemed most likely, but it's working for me on almost clean Wine (don't think it should have msvcr90)

depends reports that qBittorrent's libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll depend on msvcr90.dll, which isn't in the directory (the best way is to have it and the manifest in a directory called Microsoft.VC90.CRT, then such cases work). I'm not sure if it's good or bad or whatever, but for the moment I don't have time to test it properly in my clean XP VM.

If you want, try Angel running App\qBittorrent\qbittorrent.exe directly - if it's this DLL problem it'll complain about not being able to initialise it, whereas when run by the launcher it just fails silently (note to self: detect this in PAL 2.2 and provide a more helpful error message), and (b) copying the Microsoft.VC90.CRT directory from App\Console in Console Portable to App\qBittorrent (others may have it, but I know that it does).

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002).

Ran it directly like you suggested. It's the first time I've had a PortableApps.com app fail on me. This does make me wonder how they test these. I'd think that you'd test them on as bare/clean an OS install as possible. Seeing this error and the fact that qBittorrent's missing files that aren't in a clean and up to date install makes me think you can't really call it portable. But that's just my view on it.

Testing

I update the installer by getting the zip file of the latest release, compressing it and building the installer. Then I install it in a clean VM to check that everything is working.

Not sure why you are having an issue, but an error is possible. I'll look into it.

Thanks,

Andy

Fixed in 2.7.0 Rev 2

I've fixed this in 2.7.0 Rev 2 by including the necessary VC runtime. I usually double check each release on a virgin Windows XP SP3 virtual machine but I must have missed this one. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Broken again?

Worked good until v3.0.9 (and now v10). As previously described, I get the splash screen but nothing else. Task Manager shows it as “Running” but it’s a no-show.

Different Issue

If it's running, it's not this issue. The issue with the VC runtimes missing means qbittorrent.exe won't even start up and, when run directly, will state that it's incorrectly installed. Your issues sounds like something in the base app itself. Try running it directly (aka local mode) and if that also fails, create a new post describing your bug.

Whatever the problem was with v9 & v10, version 11 is working again. Mark this as Fixed.
