Help and FAQ / Re: Recognizing default torrent

Perhaps it got reset by uTorrent during the brief period I was using it and I missed it when I went thru Windows file associations, because Vuze had been handling everything, including magnets.  In fact, there was a period within the past year when Pirate Bay was posting magnets and Vuze handled them all, many times.

I didn't edit a script with Bit Che, haven't looked into it and wasn't planning to.

Without touching uTorrent, I opened a newly downloaded torrent file from Pirate Bay. It shows as a Vuze file on the desktop and opens Vuze when clicked on.  Perhaps you'll believe me now?

Since I don't need it any longer, I uninstalled uTorrent with Revo Pro, ran CCleaner, rebooted, checked the .torrent defaults in two places in Windows CP and then ran "The Third Man" search in Bit Che I mentioned earlier.  Using the context menu to Save or Open on any result returns some quick program action, but nothing opens.  Double clicking the entry brings up a box that shows Magnet button on the lower left, but it opens nothing.  Running a different search, such as "On the Road," and opening a result brings up a box with Torrent on the bottom left.  That opens Vuze.  Why not a magnet?  From torrent websit site, e.g., Pirate Bay, it does open a dialogue box and Vuze?

Btw, Bit Che still doesn't show Vuze among the "Open Torrent With" choices, just the three mentioned earlier.  However, in Bit Che Preferences, it says "Azureus client detected" at the bottom.

You answered my question by telling me to do the same thing that I reported having done and found didn't work as expected.

Are certain torrents online client specific?  I hadn't run across that, but SumoTorrent seems to favor uTorruent for opening and saving torrents via BitChe.  For example, do a search for "The Third Man" and choose the third result (ebook-Kindle-pdf-...).  Try saving it in Bit Che.  Notice also that in Bit Che right-click > "open torrent with" doesn't show the default client (Vuze), but others.  The torrent in question is apparently dead, but that shouldn't have anything to do with uTorrent opening.

New to Che.  The Quick Start guide says Che recognizes the default bittorrent client.  Mine is Vuze, but after a search, when I go to save the torrent, it opens uTorrent, which I also have installed.  I looked at Prefs, but don't see anything there for setting this.  And "open with" doesn't show Vuze, but uTorrent web, Synology and Trans Remote GUI, whatever the latter two are.  What am I missing?
