    Shock Computer Wizes Out There...Bittorrent and Vista?

    Advertisements
    I just got a new laptop for college and all the laptops you buy today come with window's Vista and my computer won't let me download bittorent. Are there any updated versions out there made for Vista yet? I'd imagine there are but I just can't seem to find it. Help?

    Well I use it for downloading albums b/c it takes no time to download a torrent online, then you can use bittorrent offline. A torrent is basically a compressed file. Bittorrent uncompresses that file for you.

    I'm in the same boat - I've not seen a version avaiable for Vista yet. Sorry!

    your best bet would be to contact the manufacturers and see when they are releasing bittorent for vista. I don't download music so I am no help there really.

    Have you tried going to Microsoft and downloading a driver for it? I had a problem with my printer and Vista and I just went to microsoft and typed in my printer name under driver downloads and it came up with one.. I am not sure why or udnerstand it all, that is just what my DH told me to do and it worked!!

    Have you tried Azureus? It's a good torrent download program that I use...I'm not on Vista though, so not sure if it'll work! Good luck.

    Vista's been out since January >.<. There has to be a compatible version somewhere in computer land! It's like impossible to search for it though because the only results you get are about how mad Windows is at Bittorrent for making Vista downloadable on their site. I think there are patches but you have to download Bittorrent to put a patch on it and the computer won't let you download it. Says it's corrupted or some bull.
