  1. As I said, this is a Windows issue (the necessary APIs to run BitComet just aren't there in the Server OS) What you could try is to dual boot - a separate hard drive or disk partition running W 10
  2. Please understand - Servers are NOT designed to run as workstations and are missing APIs that enable some apps to run. There is NOTHING that can be done here - if you want to run a workstation then do NOT install a server OS
  3. I'm afraid that's the problem - a lot of apps are simply not designed to be used on servers and there is no way round that. A server OS simply isn't designed to be used for anything other than what it says - a server
  4. I'm running 1.73 here on W10 (well the Dev version of W 10 Pro - think 'unstable') and the only problem I've been able to reproduce in previous versions was a failure to delete files from the app itself. Setting the main ap .exe file to 'excluded' won't fix any problems (the only reason I set it at all on the download folder is that Adawara (and Defender) tend to delete any keygens which may be bundled). Running setup with A/V off is because the A/V software gets indigestion with the bundled software. You may have a problem with your W 10 installation (that's been known to happen) an
  5. The 'padding files' are created by BC when a torrent is created from a folder (multiple files). While other apps may not use them, they can quite often 'overlap' torrents (there the beginning or end of a file is actually contained in the bits of the preceding or subsequent file. Asfor the difference in operation, there are several things to consider - first of all, Gnu/Linux is NOT Windows - it's totally different, Windows can be slower but that's all down to how its network is set up, port forwarding and so on. Download speed can also vary depending on the number of seeds and how fast th
  6. Turn it off before installing (the software used for the bundled apps triggers the A.V). Onceinstalled, I always set the download folder to 'excluded' as some keygens also trip the A/V Defender is a stand alone app - it doesn't depend on main Windows updates but does its own updating (usually un-noticed) and can hit .exe files if it thinks they will alter the contents of the registry
  7. It happens from time to time and we just have to wait for someone to reset the database. It doesn't affect up or downloading - only the 'points' (which are a bit of fun really - they don't buy beer)
  8. One thing you could try - increase pagefile.sys to double the value of your RAM and set that as both maximum and minimum values (thet prevents it fragmenting). From what you are describing, you mave a 'mempry leak'
  9. It could still be a Windows problem. I'm running W10 (Developer version) here and don't have any problems with BC and emule running simultaneously.I've tried to reproduce the error and can't so I have to admit that I'm totally stumpeds beyond suggesting that you back everything up and re-install all apps from scratch
  10. The backup and settings files are in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming Set 'View' to show hidden files and folders and you can copy the entire Bitcomet files to a thumb drive and transfer them from that
  11. Open the Properties of the torrent and in advanced change the destination drive to the new drive for those files. Also, open the 'files' tab and uncheck the existing files - this will stop them being downloafed again
  12. The problem seems to be with your router and/or W10 configuration. This is a sceen dump of my 'statistics' panel and you should see something similar. Check that all functions show working At the bottom I have green lights on DHT Connected: 3833 and Port Opened: 21174
  13. The database server went down. The website has nothing to do with the database Your uploading of only LT seeds is purely coincidental: uploading depends on the other client downloading and that doesn't always happen.
  14. Server is down - this happens at times and we all have to wait until the devs can fix it. You can still upload and download, just no points scored (which isn't critical - you can't buy beer with points. They're just for fun)
  15. In the small box at the bottom left of the screen
  16. No problems that I'm aware of ( but people do seem to jhave problems that I can't replicate) That being said, you have to go into the router in order to set ports. Unless they are opened and set to match the IP number and listening ports in the PC, you will get that error. It wonm't say 'listening port' or anything similar in the roputer - it should, however, say something on the lines of 'port forwarding'. This needs to be set to both TCP and UDP and the IP address of your computer However, that doesn't cover the installation problem. The 'zip file' you mention seems to be a 'portab
  17. Open a command prompt and type in (without quotes) Look at your IP address there and your router will have the same first three numbers - take a not of those and open a browser and enter the address as (the first three numbers) followed by 1 (similar to That should connect to the router. To change settings you will need the password which, in most cases. will be on a label on the router. Enter that (and change it before closing)
  18. First, turn off the anti-virus during installation (it can cause problems) and turn it back on onceinstalled. BC should set the firewall exception itself - if it prompts, allow it to have access Ports - the best system is to set the computer to a fixed IP number and manually add ther gateway (your router IP address) and your ISPs DNS in Network Settings servers) Make sure that the router ports are set to allow TCP and UDP on the selected listening piorts (you can set those to any value you like provided it's not a reserved one - anything about 10,,, is fine usually). So long as the p
  19. Your .xml file is corrupted. Open the folder in App Sata\Roaming\Bitcomet and delete the Downloads.xml file and rename Downloads.xml.bak to Downloads.xml To open App Data, you need to set 'View' to 'show hidden files and folders'
  20. Before you try anything else, check the following values in Options > Advanced Thiose are my settings - you may need to tweak yours a bit but they control the duration of transfers
