µTorrent and Windows 7 RTM x64

µTorrent and Windows 7 RTM x64

I have read some places that µTorrent doesn't cooperate well with Windows 7 x64. What I have read was about the beta and RC versions though.

I don't know about the RTM, but I have been using it on Windows 7 x64 RC for several months without any problems at all. I would expect the same, or better, behavior from RTM.

"The only real problem is likely if you set the downloads folder to be some folder under 'Program Files (x86)', I think it defaults to your vista/7 'Downloads' folder now, but for a while it did default to a subfolder of the installation path.

As with any program under vista/7, write access to 'Program Files'/'Program Files (x86)' is severely curtailed, even when granted administrative rights via UAC.

It's possible this would be a source of problems for people with 7 in the past, especially if they did an inplace upgrade from XP where the program files folder would be the location for downloaded torrents."
