I can't download any torrents because they are stalling. I tried everything to fix it, but I started to gave up... :( With the 4.2.0 update it was good, but since I installed the 4.2.1 update I haven't seen any downloaded torrents. PLEASE try to fix it somehow.

Version 4.2.1
Windows 10

I see the same issue in the new 4.2.1 (also on Windows 10) - all torrents remain on stalled. The DHT nodes stays at 0.

I run as a standard user account - so I tried running qBittorrent as an admin user and then it works. When running as an admin DHT is > 0, and I can download files correctly.

Previous versions of qBittorrent were working fine when running as a standard user, but the new one doesn't seem to work like this anymore...

Any ideas - would prefer not to have to run it as an admin?

Hi Pilzy, please remain courteous. ;)
Did you try what worked for the other people in this thread (launching as admin, checkin your antivirus, etc.)?

Managed to get mine working again by changing the incoming connection port to 49152 - it was on 4500. Not sure exactly why that would make a difference but it's working when I run it as a standard user again now. The admin profile had different settings so when I ran as admin the port was also a different number which is why it was working like that as well - so it's not specifically running as admin that was causing it to work - just the different port number I think.
