Paths with spaces need double quotes surrounding them.

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\Deluge"

for example.

Just do what Shryp told you to do. Then go to the shortcut on your desktop, right click, properties, then after the last " in the target field, add the logging switch so it looks something like this:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Deluge\deluge.exe" -L error -l "C:\deluge.log"

and click OK. Launch the shortcut. Go to C:\ and open the log file.

So what exactly are you typing into the command prompt?

i put in what it told me to, please leave my thread now, your trolling isnt helping me

No you have not, you did not put the following in your command prompt, take note of all the double quotes I specifically included to guard against users having spaces in the directory path.

Code: Select all

 "%ProgramFiles%\Deluge\deluge-debug.exe" -L error -l "%UserProfile%\Desktop\deluge.log"

If you want to argue with me over this then give me concrete evidence of what you typed into the command prompt, letter-for-letter...

Also I don't think you quite understand, I am the main developer of Deluge. If you want help fixing issue you need to check your attitude and reading comprehension, otherwise you are one that can leave our forum and get help elsewhere.
