    Hi
    Finally i have decided to download bitcomet so i can download stuff using torrent..
    I downloaded the program Bitcomet here on the site, and it went fine!.. Its when i start the install the problems appear, appearently it cant open some files. It says more accurate:

    "Error Opening file for writing:

    C:\programs\bitcomet\favorite.xml

    Click abort to stop the installation,
    Retry to try again, or
    ignore to skip this file"

    It says this to a dosin of different files as
    bitcomet.exe
    Crashreport.exe
    some .txt, .xml files.. but its almost everyfile it cant open..

    I have tried to delete the installfile, and redownload, but it doesnt do the trick..

    What can be wrong?

    I would look into getting a new client. Alot of private sites have banned BitComet; I don't know about public sites. Azureus (heavy on resources) and utorrent (very light) are the two I see recommended most and I swear by utorrent.

    It opens as a normal program installation.. and when it starts to install, the error occurs.. the .xml is just 1 of the many type of files it wont or cant read..
