I just uninstall utorrent from my computer and install BitComet software. When I try to download something it shows a sing saying:

file could not be opened, because the associated
helper application does not exist. Change the association
in your preferences.

How can I do this???

Thanks !

Hi esquivelp,

If I understand correctly, you mean file association.

Open windows explorer.
Click Tools
Click Folder Options
Click on the 3rd tab - File Types.

Scrolll down till you find the torrent file extention.
Click on it and click on Change.
Select BitComet and click ok until the dialog boxes are closed.

I hope this helps.

Cheers.

Hi JoWickerman

I follow the steps you told me but I dont understand when you say:

<Scrolll down till you find the torrent file extention.>
What is the torrent file extension? What do you mean by this?

Thanks

Hi,

Sorry for that. I mean that you need to scroll down till you find the extention .torrent

Click on it, click on change and the select BitComet.

Let me know if you're stuck.

Ok I did what you told me but the extension .torrent was already with bitcomet. I made the process again and click change and choose Bitcomet, but the problem still remains.

When I try to download something it says

torrent could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.

I dont know what to do. Is there another possible solution?

Thanks

I found the solution. It was a problem with firefox configuration.

Any way thank you very much JoWickerman for taking the time.
