@thepiney: Same here. I've used magnet links no problem. The only time I've had errors is when the program loses access to the downloaded torrent files while it's still trying to share them (if you deleted or moved the downloaded files without deleting the torrent file). I moved from uTorrent because they started adding advertising, but there are settings tweaks to remove it.

I've used the PA version for several years at least and never had a single issue, although, I don't recall ever using magnet links.

I switched from uTorrent but don't recall why.

Getting constantly I/O errors. This program is so bugged.

It now supports --portable parameter.

@stisev tell us what you really think lol, I will agree this software does have some problems that don't seem to get addressed so that's why I'm passing on this. :)

Such garbage software. The author is about the biggest asshole I have ever met in the development world. Seriously, if you think this is an opinion go read the issues forum. as ransom for portable mode, he's demanding people give him money. You really can't make this shit up.

I gave qbittorrent an honest try. I can't get magnet links to associate with the portable version anymore. I even tried running it in Sandboxie and manually installing a reg entry.

This app should be reported and removed from PF as it constantly spreads its files all over my computer after magnet links are associated.
IT. IS. NOT. PORTABLE. and based on what the way the dev is screaming at its users, it's becoming donation-ware.

I encourage you all to petition mods to remove this app.

@stisev: I really don't think feature bounties like what the qBitTorrent dev requested are harmful. As open source / freeware developers rarely see donations, I'd rather see requests like these than adware/bundleware.

Make no mistake, qBittorrent is basically a fad client. webfork, there was a long, long thread and the author brushed everyone off demanding money for a portable version. Seriously? A damn shame since the app is pretty decent. I want to drop uTorrent 2.2.1 since after the anniversary update it's been crashing.

The only other viable option is Tixati. :(

I (along with many others I am reading) are boycotting this app until a 100% native portable client comes out.

There's been some activity in the "portable version" issue on Github, as recently as 27 May.
