Include some instructions on installing without an installer

Installing Deluge On Windows

To install Deluge on Windows, head to the downloads page and select Windows from the list of download options. You will be presented with the option to download Deluge for 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows.

If you are unsure which version you need, you can find out by right-clicking the My Computer icon and selecting Properties. Under the System section of the General tab, you will see your Windows version. If this includes x64 Edition you will need to download the 64-bit version of Deluge, otherwise download the 32-bit version. If you are still unsure, download the 32-bit version.

Without the Installer

Installing Deluge on Windows without the installer requires that you install a bunch of dependencies first. Luckily, you generally only have to do this once and subsequent updates should be a lot quicker.


Any 2.5, or 2.6 version will suffice, but do not install 3.0 or newer. Download and run the installer from:
Python Win32 Extensions
Download and run the installer from here: but make sure you download the installer that corresponds to the Python version you installed.
Gtk+ Runtime
Download and run the installer from here:
Download and run the 3 installers from:
This includes PyCairo, PyGObject and PyGTK.
Download and install from: You will need to extract the tarball and run 'python install'.
Download and install from here: If an egg is only available, just download it and drop it into your Python site-packages folder.
XXX: Need to have a Windows binary available.

Installing Deluge

Now that you've got all the required dependencies installed, we can install Deluge.

  1. Download the latest source tarball from:
  1. Extract it and load up a command prompt window and move to the extracted folder where is located.
  1. To install:
    python build
    python install

Note: If the command prompt complains it can't find 'python' then you need to use the absolute path. In my case it is: C:\Python26\python.exe

Running Deluge

Now that Deluge has been successfully installed, you can run it by using the executable located in the Scripts folder in your Python installation. On my system it is located at C:\Python26\Scripts\deluge.exe.
