qBittorrent can't launch

Post by vasssiia »

Hello,

Just discovered that I can't launch qbittorrent.
I see that process starting and disappearing from Task Manager. I do not have it blocked by Defender (at least I cant see any warnings). No issues in Event Viewer.
Reinstalling new version not helped me. Reinstalling older one as well.
I noticed if I removed settings folder in AppData\Roaming software shows screen with confirmation of file exchange after first launch and that's all.
qBittorrent\logs file shows nothing about launching.

So even if you wipe qBittorrent and ALL it's settings (mind you, there is a folder both in %APPDATA% and %LOCALAPPDATA%) it just won't run?

Are you sure you were not using two monitors and maybe it's opening on the second screen?
Could you check the memory usage of the qbittorrent.exe process when this happens?

Thank you.

Thanks for feedback.

I was able to find reason. I changed couple of days ago User's temp folders locations to another drive. When I return drive letter back - it restored software launching.
