    I have purchased this app on my Microsoft Surface and payed with my Mastercard Debit card today, the money has been taken from my account but I have not received the app. Please let me know what can be done.

    How do I download torrent files from tpb using this on surface?


    1. Hi!

      This isn't a standalone torrent client if that's what you are after. It lets you manage a remote instance of the actual uTorrent program. This is duly noted on the app description, and on this website.

      Otherwise, if you are asking how to add torrent files from TPB - you can copy and paste a magnet link from there (swipe from the bottom to bring up the app bar and then tab on Add from URL)

    I have done everything in the steps but as soon as I open the server that I created it says"Somethign went wrong connecting to the server. No connectiomn could b made as target server actively refused it HRESULT: 0x8007274D

    1. Hi!

      If you are trying to use it on the same computer as uTorrent is installed:

      Please follow this: Workaround for connecting on the same computer

      And then see this user-posted comment: Re: Adding a connection to the uTorrent Client app

      If you are NOT trying to use it on the same computer as uTorrent is installed, can you make sure that uTorrent is running in the background and that you are using the correct port when setting up the server in the app.

    short n sweet....I cannot install utorrent on my computer according to what you've written. I have utorrent on two other pc's, nary a problem. But this time, I pay $1.99 and I"m confronted with instructions & terminology I cant deal  with.

    And why am I suddenly paying for this...certainly, thus far, there is no benefit.

    I suggest  that you do an do an installation short video, Then,perhaps, you will start to receive so positive & good comments.

    I couldnt even sign up for this site, so I must remain anonymous.

    I would prefer that I  receicve detailed instructions to my email, before I approach MIcrosoft.

    thank you for your help,

    hello, I just bought the utorrent app on my surface tablet, and I am trying to turn on the web UI, but it keeps saying to open up utorrent and then open up options and I could find it in there, but I can not find the option anywhere on the utorrent app, please let me know what I should do. thanks

    1. Hi!

      The options for the Web UI are on the uTorrent program, not on this app you purchased (smile)

    How do I get to the utorrent program, were would I find the program, sorry I am new to this, I downloaded the utorrent app, but that is all I did so far,. Please let me know were I could find the program. Thanks


    1. Make sure you've downloaded and installed uTorrent:

      Note that this app isn't to download torrents to your device - it is used to connect to uTorrent running on another computer and manage the torrents running there. This is vigorously outlined on the description page on the Windows Store for this app, on this website, and during the welcome tutorial when you first launch the app.

    Hi, I can not connect my app utorrent with the surface of the utorrent desktop. I did the upgrade procedures of programas.netframework, run the command in cmd, I received the result OK, but I could not run, put the port on the server that is on utorrent, and the ip, he asked username and password, tried the my laptop username and password, my e-mail and remote utorrent. None made it work, the errors are 404, and sometimes 0x8007274D. Thanks for your help. sorry the down english, i'm brazillian.

    1. Hi!

      Let's get this right (smile) You have a Surface tablet, and another computer running uTorrent? If that's the case you need to follow this page: Setting up for access on a local network. The steps on that page need to be done on the computer running uTorrent.

      There's no need for you to follow the steps on this page: Workaround for connecting on the same computer

        No, i have a w8 pc, and i have the utorrent desktop on the desktop, and have the utorrent app on w8 pc surface.

        1. Great (smile) Then all you need to do is follow this page: Setting up for access on a local network

          Those steps apply to the Win 8 PC (desktop).

          You don't need to run any commands on your Surface tablet. Also, the IP address is not correct for your scenario. Follow the page I linked, and then when you're done, follow this page: Adding a connection to the uTorrent Client app which will help you add the connection on your tablet.

    Could you add a live tile so that it reports that torrent download is finished. This would be very useful, pleese?

    1. Hi!

      Thanks for your feedback - I'm  hoping to implement this soon.

  10. Anonymous

    Thank you for your response.

    If i buy the app now, will the future updates be free?

    I am wondering about that becouse if not, i will wait for that live tile.

    Continue the good work, the app is exelent.

    1. Yes, all updates are free (smile) This is the case for all apps on the Windows Store, unless apps use in-app purchases for additional features (which, this one does not).

    Great app!

    One missing thing is that it doesn't register as a .torrent files program, so you can't load torrents straight from the browser (you have to save and open from the app, or copy/paste the address).

    Also, since torrents are supposed to be free, how about an ad-supported free version? Of course I apreciate the hard work put into this app, it well deserves it's price - just an idea (wink)

    1. Hi! Thanks for your feedback (smile) 

      Because the app supports more than one uTorrent server, I have not found a user friendly way to associate it with .torrent files (i.e. which server should the .torrent file go to?). I have some ideas, so you can probably expect this feature soon enough!

    Hey Michael,

    I'm the guy that posted the bug about the remote access being broken.  I forgot that I hadn't provided an email address when generating the bug to receive a email response.

    The problem was resolved, though it was strange.  I changed the ports to listen (in uTorrent, App and Router), but it still didn't work.  I then changed them a third time, and when I clicked on the app, all of the connections worked immediately.  As in, it didn't even request a password, since it was saved from my previous entry.  Anywho, thanks for the reply!  Lovin' the easy access to torrent activity.

    1. That's great news! (smile)

    Bought the app. Exellent work. Looking faward to the live tile feature to indicate when the torrent is finished. Keep up the good work.

    i was hoping to make this app the default handler for magnets and torrents - automatically adding them on the connected server (or asking the user which server they prefer if multiple servers exist). is this or something similar a planned feature?

      Yes this is a planned feature (smile)

        The uTorrent Client app is not a standalone torrent downloader/torrent client. Its sole purpose is to connect to and manage a remote instance of uTorrent. Because of this, we would kindly ask that you do not leave negative feedback or low app ratings on the Windows Store page External Link if you mistakenly thought that this app is a standalone torrent client (i.e. please read the description of this app on its Windows Store page External Link).

    Not sure where to post feature requests- Don't want to mess up the project tracking pages and can't find a forum. Any chance of allowing us to set a default server so that opening magnet links / *.torrent files doesn't need to prompt? Or at least have it default to the only server if only one exists. I only have it connected to one server and it seems pointless having to select that one server each time I open a file or link. Just a thought. (smile)

    Another suggestion. I know this one goes a bit against the Metro design principals but any chance of offering a smaller font / item size? I use the app in a Stardock ModernMix window on a large display desktop system and would love to see more at once while keeping the appealing design and layout. I love the icons, features, and information displayed, but would simply like more of it there at once. I'm not saying change the app for all, but a little option under the settings charm for a smaller font / icon size would be great.

  26. Anonymous

    Couple of things I'd love to see. Multiple item select. Also keyboard shortcuts here too (i.e. ctrl +a). Also when selecting the last-most torrent the app bar covers it quite a bit. Perhaps some padding at the bottom of the torrent list?

    My device uses the 1920x1080 screen resolution and the app's live tile, splash screen and the back button in snapped mode (and maybe something else, I haven't used the app much yet) don't look OK. Please optimize the app's graphics for higher resolution screens.

    Thanks in advance.

    Looks like unfortunately that support is stopped, but if you do see this, could you please direct me to where I need to go as I'm sure you have a tutorial on the site.  I'm using a Windows 8 tablet which runs the app and the desktop app is on a windows 7 computer, all works perfectly because I followed the instructions unlike half of the above. My problem is that I sometimes want to download directly to the tablet but don't know how to do this as it automatically opens the app now. Is there a way to open torrents using the desktop app only? As I would prefer to use it rather than the app. Or is the only way to create a new server? If so, how do I do this?

    Please help cause I'm gonna have to uninstall the app if you don't, as I download things to the directly a lot.
