Magnet link downloads won't work
#1
Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was able to the site I have always downloaded from, right clicked on the magnet link and then pasted it into Vuze for it to get the files, etc. Recently however, regardless of what magnet link I attempt to copy and paste into Vuze, Vuze immediately kicks the torrent out and throws an error. I haven't changed any of my settings so WHAT has happened?? Any insight would be great!

What's the error it reports? You could test with this magnet to see if it a general issue:

OK, I'll ask the question on the basis that I might learn something, BUT,  whats wrong with just left-clicking the magnet-link at the torrent site and letting your Vuze client download the torrent, hence, it is automatically inserted into your active torrents folder? 
A much simpler process!

Normally the left-click process works because Vuze registers as a URI protocol handler for 'magnet'. However, some browsers don't, for whatever reason, play ball - the copy/paste is a fallback approach for these users.

Yes, seems to have become a problem with the Windows 7 SP1/IE 11 duo.  Here's a fix for that problem.

~~In Windows
Download and install Vuze
Open NotePad and type the following in it:

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet]
@="URL:magnet Protocol"
"URL Protocol"=""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet\shell\open]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Vuze\\Azureus.exe\" \"%1\""

If you are using Bit-torrent client other than Vuze, replace the last line C:\Program Files\Vuze\Azureus.exe with the filepath of your Bit torrent application.

If you are using a 32bit BT-client in Win 7, the program folder will probably be "Program Files (x86)"

Save the file as “magnet.reg“, then double-click it to insert into the Windows registry.

You will see some warning windows

Click Yes to proceed.

Once the import is completed, you can click on the magnet link in your browser and then select the application that you want to use. (obviously, that will be your bit-torrent client)

Hmm, we do try and do that - see

https://svn.vuze.com/public/client/trunk...rImpl.java

method: registerMagnet()

OK, thanks parg, the method I posted definitely works (not my fix, I found it elsewhere) but I'll try the java method on a new build I have in progress.

DOES THIS PATCH ALSO WORKS FOR WINDOWS 8-1. I had it working, but because of other problems, namely I cannot get results from I2P Helper, I did a reinstal from scratch and the left click no longer works.
It is not necessary to do all that. I Edit the registry in ROOT Magnet and Azureus was there but on Program Files(x86) directory . The new version of Vuze Went to Program Files. Erased the X86. Works fine.

I just had this problem with a fresh machine, and my fix was to just paste the magnet link into Firefox. :)

GO TO VUZE..... TOOLS, OPTIONS, INTERFACE THEN MAXUMIZE VUZE AND PUSH THE RESET FILE ASSOCIATION BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE, ALL FIXED.
