I've been using P2P for a bit, and it's pretty awesome and works almost perfectly. The only problem I've run into is that it will occasionally crash, seems to happen after clicking around for a few minutes. Anyone know a fix for that? I have tried it on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. It looks like this version is from 2001, so I wonder if there's a newer version available.
Well, I am not sure how to fix the crashing issue that I see on 2 different computers, but I did create a new automated installer for anyone that cares for it. The installer from page 2 of this thread would leave files behind after uninstalling it, which annoyed me, so I decided to start over.

I wrote a script in the NSIS installer scripting language, and it works well. I have decided to provide the source code for this script here, and any other more trusted user would be able to compile it and provide a binary for folks to download. So here's the script: http://pastebin.com/990BkxhK
To build the installer from the source code, you will need to install NSIS from http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Download - I built it with NSIS version 2.x, but the script should work with 3.x. You will also need an icon file named "Icon.ico" - you should be able to download it from here: http://www.iconj.com/download.php?d=e&file=esw9j56caq You will need to rename the file to Icon.ico after you have downloaded it. I actually extracted that icon from the P2P program using Resource Hacker, if you want to try getting it that way instead. Finally, you should be able to double-click the installer.nsi file and it will generate your installer after a few seconds. If that doesn't work, open a command line and find the NSIS program and pass the installer .nsi as the only argument to makensis.exe.

Finally, for those of you that blindly trust me, the new guy, to not upload a virus, you can use the version that I built myself. I don't recommend this, but if no other trusted user builds the script and uploads the file, then that will be your only option.

Enjoy!

My Antivirus software blocked me when I downloaded your file. It quarantined the p2p file as a Trojan.
That's unfortunate. I know the file is good, and if you are worried about it I provided the instructions above to build it yourself if you wish to do that. Otherwise, you might need to tell your antivirus that it's wrong, and get the file out of quarantine in order to be able to use it. Sorry about that, generally antivirus programs only like files that are very common and used by a lot of people.

I have uploaded to VirusTotal here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/b4d6fa5b6d66420f99c75731ef56ac60972db0dc87b6e5211efd2ee6698201c5/analysis/1487347494/
They scan it with 59 different programs. Out of those, it was detected by two - so generally a high confidence that the detection is most likely inaccurate. Hope this helps.
