µTorrent 2.0.x - an old version of the application. Contains many improvements over previous versions, including advanced bandwidth management. Recommended for daily use.
The utorrents starts, connects to trackers, all commands work, connectable=yes.
What does not
The single issue that I have with utorrent is the lack of speed and number of active peers that actually share with the client, sometimes like 3-5 no more, the rest are inactive.

If/When you get this error:
It seems like uTorrent is already running, but not responding. Please close all uTorrent processes and try again.
you could simply kill all the utorrent processes with:
killall -9 uTorrent.exe
Then just open utorrent, not the installer.
You can also open µtorrent with '/NOINSTALL' parameter but then you can't change any settings (if I understood right). E.g.:
C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe" /NOINSTALL
#!/bin/sh QUICKPARLOCATION="c:\\Program Files\\uTorrent\\uTorrent.exe" if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then wine "$QUICKPARLOCATION" else PARAM=`winepath -w "$*"` wine "$QUICKPARLOCATION" "$PARAM" fiPut it in one of the directories in your PATH, for example /usr/bin, make it executable, and finally set .torrent files to open with this script.
