    I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing problems with Acquistition. I can search for things and I get results but nothing downloads. Also the program freezes everytime I try to close it and I must always force quit. I have already uninstalled and installed it, so I am not sure what the problem is?

    When you uninstalled it did you remove all of the application support files, caches and preferences? If not give zap with AppZapper or similar, or just remove them from your library manually.

    1. Do you have a firewall in place?

    2. Have you tried David Watanabe's newest app: XTorrent?

    What do I do if I did remove something I shouldn't have? That might be the case here... how can I get the program running again...

    i've been having similar problems with the amn thing1
    it starts downloading but it stall shortly after, i cannot even force quit.
    And i must turn the computer off using the button that's the only way.
    i've e-mailed the guys asking for help but nada.
    There is something in their help page but is as good as talking to me in some weird language i never heard before:
    "Acquisition stalls when quitting. / Acquisition will not download files.
    When this happens, in the Terminal, type "kill -QUIT pid" where pid is the process ID of the Java subprocess (process IDs can be found using Activity Monitor). Send the resulting Console log to the developer for diagnosis."
    ...what?!!
    can someone explain that to me in plain english?
