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?

  • i just had a similar issue. It seemed to have something to do with Firefox, (the non-tor version) being open and being in the middle of an update. I tried shutting down firefox and tor and restarting them on their own, and in combination until it worked all of a sudden. – Loopo Feb 17 '16 at 1:05

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.

  • i think the problem is tor not connecting. Starting up fine, but not managing to get connected to network/ relay. I have the same problem. I turned off firewall for the app. – Loopo Feb 17 '16 at 0:49
