What version of BitComet are you using?

- BitComet 1.15

What type of Internet connection do you have (ADSL, etc.)?

- Arizona State University connection, but I'm not sure what type of internet it is.

Speed seems to fluctuate a lot on campus, but it is relatively high.


Do you have a modem? Do you use a router? What model? Have you forwarded your port?

- No, I connect through my laptop's built-in wireless. Atheros AR5008X Wireless Network Adapter

What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use?

- Windows Vista, Kaspersky Internet Security 8

The problem:

- I was using BitComet 1.00 with no problems, but since upgrading to BitComet 1.15, I get these two errors:



Is it something on my end that I'm completely missing? I upgraded because some trackers have a blacklist on the older BitComet clients, only to run into this. For now, I've been installing BitComet 1.00 over 1.15 to save and start torrents, then installing 1.15 over 1.00 to actually download.

Thanks in advance,

The first error is telling you that you need a full pathname for the default download directory.

"Downloads" is not a full pathname. This is really very elementary, and we at this forum are not prepared or equipped to instruct on this level. You need very basic computer instruction about designating drives and directories, and the proper syntax for doing this.

You can obtain a correct pathname, (but not the requisite knowledge), by clicking on the "..." button next to the text field, and simply navigating to the directory you want to use as the default. But since paathnames will be necessary or come in handy, I still urge you to obtain the needed instruction.

Your second issue is similar. The pathname you are trying to use contains a directory named ".sea", which is not a valid directory name in Windows (though it may be, in other operating systems). A directory name in Windows cannot begin with a period. If this is an external drive you will need to map it with a different, legal name before you can use it. If it is a local drive you will have to use a valid pathname.
