[...] Except for the Mac OS X application, there are no binary distributions from the project. Each Linux distribution makes binaries available using their usual distribution methods. For Windows there are no distributions so far, except perhaps the one I’ve been making available through links on the Transmission forum. [...] This little project is a continuation of the forum thread, a place to distribute new builds, and in the future a point of departure to explore new builds… a 64-bit build perhaps, another one with new (experimental) features and fixes (before we propose them as enhancements on Transmission’s Trac Wiki, which is what I have done with the Windows port patches).
I didn't manage to UniExtract the installer with my current Universal Extractor (should someone else meet with success, please report...), so I ran it taking care to note the installation folder and unselecting the 'run application' option at the end. I copied that folder elsewhere, and deleted 'uninstall.exe' from it. From the installation folder I ran the uninstaller. After that, Primo reported leftovers at:
Code: Select all
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults" ; empty key "C:\Program Files\InstallJammer Registry" ; two sub-folder, one with an executable inside "%APPDATA%\transmission" ; settings generated from a run of the installed version
I found that, in accordance to the mainstream Transmission wiki (located @ http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/), the contents of its configuration folder is: 2 files -- settings.json, stats.json -- and 3 subfolders -- torrents, resume, blocklists. settings.json is a plain text file (a documented format) holding most of the application's configuration options, including paths. Also, when run with that '-g' parameter, Transmission-Qt placed its Downloads folder inside the user's My Documents location by default...
