I have read some places that µTorrent doesn't cooperate well with Windows 7 x64. What I have read was about the beta and RC versions though.

Does anyone have any experiences using it in the RTM version?

Cool. Will accept this as answer since you have the least rep, and you took the time of taking a screen shot :p – Svish Aug 19 '09 at 12:05

uTorrent works perfectly in Windows 7 RTM.

I don't know about the RTM, but I have been using it on Windows 7 x64 RC for several months without any problems at all. I would expect the same, or better, behavior from RTM.

I'm running it on x64 RTM with no problems.

The only real problem is likely if you set the downloads folder to be some folder under 'Program Files (x86)', I think it defaults to your vista/7 'Downloads' folder now, but for a while it did default to a subfolder of the installation path.

As with any program under vista/7, write access to 'Program Files'/'Program Files (x86)' is severely curtailed, even when granted administrative rights via UAC.

It's possible this would be a source of problems for people with 7 in the past, especially if they did an inplace upgrade from XP where the program files folder would be the location for downloaded torrents.
