uTorrent.exe disappears when I Wine it.
Hey guys. I have a little issue that I hope I might solve here.
I really liked the uTorrent BitTorrent client that I used on windows and I found that I could Wine it on Ubuntu. I followed the steps presented on the link below:
The good news is that it works. Perfectly, in fact. I was able to run it, download some stuff; all is good.
Except that the second I execute the utorrent.exe in my /home/utorrent, the executable file disappears and I have to re-download it to run utorrent if I close the app.
Is there a reason for this mysterious disappearance and can I fix it from happening again?
Any input is appreciated.

Wow! I never heard of a self deleting application.
You could experiment by putting it in it's own directory that is read-only. I always have a directory name C:\bin on my fake C drive which is no my Windows PATH. So I will show the commands with that assumption. Modify as necessary.
mkdir ~/.wine/drive_c/bin/readonly cp -pv uTorrent.exe ~/.wine/drive_c/bin/readonly/ chmod -w ~/.wine/drive_c/bin/readonly cd ~/.wine/drive_c/bin ln -s readonly/uTorrent.exe
