Windows 7: Cannot install utorrent

Cannot install utorrent

When I try, it gets to the last screen and I hit "Install" and nothing happens. I have tried with the current stable version and the beta RC version with the same thing. I also tried turning off Avira AV both times and it still just sits there. Anybody have any ideas?
Forgot to say that I am using Win7-64.

What exactly do you mean by "nothing happens"? Does it freeze? Does it exit with no result?

Are there any temporary data/folders that were created and left behind?

We need to know exactly in what state your computer is after you click "Install" to really debug this.

Try using a different browser and don't use any download managers when you download Utorrent.

apparently uTorrent is some fork of BitTorrent because they look identical?

By "nothing happens", I mean the last screen is still there. I can hit Install again and it is as if nothing happens. The install button changes color (like it's supposed to), but then nothing more happens. I checked for temp files, but do not find any.

I guess I just ditched utorrent for Bittorrent, as the Bittorrent client works just fine and is almost identical to utorrent.

I had the same problem I hit install and the window freezes but a shortcut is created on the desktop and the app woks fine. I just closed the installation window.

Glad I could give you a helpful alternative that works.
