TORRENT DOWNLOADING BUGS in 6.4.4, 6.4.5 (BEING FIXED)

Postby possent » Mon Feb 06, 2017 3:24 am

Since the last update, I have been experiencing a new bug. On Windows 10.

A file will download to 100% - then go to seeding.
If I log off Frostwire and log back on, it will either still show as 100% and begin downloading all over again, or will show as 0% with filesize downloaded being correct, but still download again.

I have had one 4Gb file download 3 times over, starting it's 4th time. This happens on nearly every file now.

Hi,
I have same opinion that 6.4.5 is equally as bugged. 6.4.3 was last stable build.

Still having this issue. And now - when attempting a download - it gets through a partial download and then says it's complete. It has only downloaded a fraction of the file.

It also appears that the only source it can find is TorLock

Completely uninstalled and re-installed. The "partial download" seems to have stopped - but the re-downloading of already downloaded files still happens intermittently

are you by any chance using FrostWire from a corporate network, or a university?

We get search results from all sources.

sounds like you need to check your firewall settings and let FrostWire open and accept connections.
Check your Windows Firewall Settings, if you see that FrostWire is white listed there, you might want to check any Antivirus or Internet Protection software you may have installed on your computer that might be blocking FrostWire.

If not the firewall settings, then the security program sometimes causes this problem. Check the security product allowed apps and software

Eset was causing this issue with me too. I enabled FrostWire from it's disallowed list.

I am using Kaspersky, means have to check its settings?
