Depends on what exactly you're looking for.
REG QUERY to read registry values.
NETSH ADVFIREWALL to define or get settings about the firewall.
try

Code: Select all

netsh advfirewall firewall show rule name=all type=dynamic

Thanks Worked fine :D
This is how for any one else want the code:

Code: Select all

netsh advfirewall firewall show rule name="uTorrent" >nul
if %errorlevel%== 0  ECHO uTorrent Firewall Rule Exist
) Else ( ECHO uTorrent Firewall Rule Doesn't Exist )


The Registry

Code: Select all

set a=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
REG QUERY "%a%" /v "uTorrent" /s >nul
if %errorlevel%== 0 ( ECHO uTorrent Startup Entry Exist
) Else ( ECHO uTorrent Startup Entry Doesn't Exist )

replace the rule name in firewall and the startup entry name in registry with your program and the message after ECHO

How to have utorrent finish a torrent download from Bittorrent? I'm switching over from using Bittorrent to utorrent, but I have a huge unfinished file to download that's halfway through. I don't wanna start it over, so I need to know how I can have utorrent finish it (w/o accidently reseting the download to 0%). So, what do I need to do to have utorrent finish my Bittorrent download?

@yaiohena:

This is offtopic, but utorrent was mentioned above so:

I would do this:

1. Maybe you could make a backup of these partialy downloaded files?
2. open this .torrent file with uTorrent - make sure download location is the same. Also make sure it does *not* start.
3. right click on the torrent and select Recheck (or something like this).
4. It should start checking what you have - it should finish with the same downloaded value - if not then it would mean that your download location is not the same.
5. When it finishes just click Start or Force start.

This is confirmed to be working.
