I need to download a very old publicly-released SDK from about 15 years ago. The file is no longer available from the company that wrote it since the company was bought out and does not exist anymore. The file is big enough or obscure enough that it is not available on any web site I could find. Therefore, I need to use a file sharing repository to find this file and download it.
The old file sharing systems like Gopher seem to no longer exist and have been replaced apparently by "bittorrent", so I was like, Ok, I will try this BitTorrent thing. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get it to work.
I installed the "micro torrent" client, but it just sits there and does nothing. There is no "search" function that I could find on the interface. There is no help system for the software. The "help" button just redirects the user to their web site. When I go to micro torrents web site there is no user manual or operating guide or quick start manual, just a brief set of "frequently asked questions", none of which describe how to get started with the software.
How can I find out how to operate this software so I can download the file I need?
(Note: I do not want to use BitTorrent web sites because they require registrations, etc, so please do suggest going to a web site. I want to understand how to operate a BitTorrent desktop client.)
