When I double click on the
tor.exe, a window comes up saying "connecting to the Tor Network". The status bar goes almost half way and stops. I am using Windows 7 64 bit and NOT using any proxies. Where could be a problem?
The Tor Browser Bundle has a start script which is called
Start Tor Browser (maybe appended with
.exe). It is in the directory where you unpacked the software. The
tor.exe is probably in the
Tor/ subdirectory. So when you navigate one level up, you'll see the start script. Double-click on it. After a short waiting time the Tor Browser will pop up and you can use the software.
