Also includes boss key, built-in search function and RSS capability for subscribed downloads.

Note that this software was changed to adware after being added to the Portable Freeware database.

Alternatively, µTorrent Portable is also available, which automatically adjusts paths.

Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Adware
How to extract:

  2. Create an empty text file called settings.dat in the same folder
  3. Launch uTorrent.exe

After i extracted uTorrent.exe 3.5.5 with 7-zip in the extracted folder there are couple of .dll files. Are they needed? Can i delete them?

@robzuc: see 'What is "portable"' on the "about" page: https://www.portablefreeware.com/about.php Not leaving stuff behind is not "stealth" in the parlance here, and uTorrent works fine when moving from machine to machine and saves your settings.

As I wrote on 2015-09-26, the original software isn't portable. I don't know why it hasn't yet been blacklisted from this website... Anyway, I tried the PortableApps version, but initially it didn't work: I had to rename first uTorrent_Downloaded.exe to uTorrent.exe in the [\uTorrentPortable\App\uTorrent] folder.

Besides adware, it's not truly portable: the first time I launch each new version of uTorrent.exe, I can find it listed between installed programs. After uninstalling it, it works anyway, but leaving some leftovers in the registry. So: is that really portable?

@ robzuc: Build 40907 was available for a short time, but maybe had a problem/bug.
I switched back the database entry to build 40760.

v3.4.3 (build 40760)
