wine utorrent.exe


hey folks!
Im trying to emulate utorrent under linux using wine. I allready got it working once, but there seem to be some network problems or so... wine is able to display the utorrent window as it's displayed in windows. But the thing is, when i open a torrent, it just doesnt get started and says "tracker offline (timeout)" I know from other clients that the tracker and so the torrent should be working..
Here's what the terminal is putting on:
Quote:
fault@fault:~$ wine utorrent.exe
fixme:vxd:VXD_Open Unknown/unsupported VxD L"sice.vxd". Try setting Windows version to 'nt40' or 'win31'.
fixme:vxd:VXD_Open Unknown/unsupported VxD L"ntice.vxd". Try setting Windows version to 'nt40' or 'win31'.
fault@fault:~$ fixme:vxd:VXD_Open Unknown/unsupported VxD L"sice.vxd". Try setting Windows version to 'nt40' or 'win31'.
fixme:vxd:VXD_Open Unknown/unsupported VxD L"ntice.vxd". Try setting Windows version to 'nt40' or 'win31'.
err:imagelist:ImageList_LoadImageW Error loading image!
err:imagelist:ImageList_LoadImageW Error loading image!
err:imagelist:ImageList_LoadImageW Error loading image!
fixme:listview:LISTVIEW_SetColumnOrderArray iCount 15 lpiArray 0x7fb0ecc0
fixme:keyboard:UnregisterHotKey (0x60032,1): stub
fixmeowermgnt:SetThreadExecutionState (0x1): stub, harmless.
Maybe someone of you can help me with that? That'd be really great.
Thx!

have you "Try setting Windows version to 'nt40' or 'win31" why are you using utorrent anyways? there are plenty of other torrent apps for nix

fault@fault:~$ wine --winver nt40 utorrent.exe
Warning: the specified Windows directory L"c:\\windows" is not accessible.
Warning: the specified System directory L"c:\\windows\\system" is not accessible.
Warning: could not find DOS drive for current working directory '/home/fault', starting in the Windows directory.wine: cannot open (null)
What do I have to do to fix that?
I'm working on it. But if you'd have a hint for that. That'd be great!

I plan on using utorrent because i need a proper client to manager many torrents at the same time. I dont like azureus tho, and I'm very limited in my given alternatives by trackers. Many clients are banned on special trackers. uTorrent worked fine for me under windows. It'd be just great to make it run under linux.
Cheers!

winecfg is fine. i removed the .wine dir. and let winecfg set wine up. Also set my windows version to winxp.
The Dos drive is now recognized by wine, and i dont get errors about that.

My wine version was too old to emulate utorrent too. I just updated it, and everything works fine now
thx for the effort bosewicht!

Not allowed? by a Uni network? if that's the case your torrent client is the least of your worries, they'll be monitoring the bandwidth usage if they haven't banned it, and may well sell you out to some nasty corporate types.

I can't imagine why you're not allowed a Linux torrenting program but are allowed a windows one.....

im allowed to use azureus...
its just rules of some trackers i dont want to meantion here. some not so legal trackers with high security settings... if you know what i mean... i dont want to switch topics here.
its just because, the client needs to be able to send an identification code. and most clients arent. some of them just dont send it properly. thats all. no worries.
