Description

when attempting to create a new torrent i get "creation of torrent failed" ... no matter what it is ... ive even tried text documents ... pictures ... programs ... etc ... zipping ... tried how i added the torrent ... either dragging and dropping ... or selecting from within the program or from file ... its just not working for me ... i dont know what to do im up to date ...

also ... another thing ... sometimes when i start transmission up again after restarting or just closing the program ... the status bars go an infinite length ... and you have to delete finished torrents that are seeding to get the bar back to normal ... any thoughts?

What operating system are you on? Set the appropriate component and update to 1.34. Is anything printed in Transmission's message log or the system console when this happens? Does the error dialog give any more specific information?

i am running tiger 10.4.11 with the latest updates. the exact error message is [creation of "file.torrent" failed.] no more specifics than that ... nothing is printed in the log ... im running 1.34 sorry i didnt list that in the original post.

You have checked the application Console.app and Transmission's message log window (with it set to debug before attempting the cration)?

Also, can you try a nightly build: http://transmission.xpjets.com/

Hey, wait, I have the same issue, tried everything, restarting, addding from various dirs, etc. Creation of torrent failed. Now downloading uTorrent for Mac to try to create torrent after all.

painz: okay, first thing to do is to download a nightly build from http://www.transmissionbt.com/download.php#nightlies and see if the problem still persists and, if so, whether or not you get a more informative error message than before.
