I'm running uTorrent under Windows 7 Ultimate and I was wondering if there's a way to get uTorrent to download the same torrents for each user in the computer. For instance, let's say I start downloading a torrent and then log off, and then another user logs in. I want that user to resume my download when he starts uTorrent. I tried to do this by saving all .torrents to a shared folder and then setting it up so it automatically loads .torrents from that shared folder. However, since once they are being downloaded they're replaced by .loaded files, this isn't working.

Run µTorrent in portable mode:

How can I make µTorrent run self-contained in one directory?

Simply copy the entire contents of %AppData%\uTorrent into the same folder as utorrent.exe. Alternatively, create a blank file named settings.dat in the same folder as utorrent.exe

You can copy the settings to C:\Program Files\uTorrent, just make sure to give users "Modify" permission on the directory.

Worked like a charm, thanks! – Fernando Martin Jun 23 '11 at 18:17

You could try running µTorrent as a service and then using the web interface to administer it. This actually works, I've tried it.

Running such programs as LocalSystem account is terribly insecure (in fact, much worse than Administrator). The method is acceptable if used with a dedicated µTorrent user account. – grawity Jun 23 '11 at 17:44

aye yo !! all u need to do is copy the setup file of utorrent in any other drive other than c drive (i did in D drive . my father "LAXEY_DON" was a user n i was admin ) then from the other user install utorrent from D drive

OP wants to download the same content not uTorrent. You are suggesting to install utorrent twice in the computer – pun Nov 25 '15 at 20:38
