The downloads

The client can be downloaded, precompiled and ready to run. DC++ runs on any recent Windows version (XP SP3, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1) as well as under Wine.

If you have experience in C++ programming, the source code for DC++ is also available. To compile DC++, you will need either the tools from MinGW or Microsoft Visual Studio. Refer to the compiling guide for more information.

DC++ is distributed with language files included. By default it will use the language specified in Windows locale settings. You can change it in Settings > Appearance > Language. Found errors or omissions in DC++'s interface of your native? You can help translating DC++ to your own language using our web-based translating interface.

Package information

The DC++ distribution has three files:

A Windows Installer that sets up DC++ for immediate usage on both 32 and 64 bit systems (into your Program Files folder, with shortcuts and user profile support).
This file is of the form DCPlusPlus-###.exe.

A binary archive that can be unzipped anywhere and is usable right away (portable version, without any shortcuts or registry information created).
This file is of the form DCPlusPlus-###.zip for 32 bit systems and DCPlusPlus-###-x64.zip for 64 bit systems.

An archive with the source code that was used for compiling and creating the executable distributed in the other packages; for experienced programmers.
This file is of the form DCPlusPlus-###-src.zip.

Notable changes in DC++ 0.851:

Compared to DC++ 0.843, DC++ 0.851 updates the various libraries used by the program, leading to more stability and security. DC++ 0.851 has a specific focus on security; it especially thwarts certain methods that were using the DC network to launch "ddos" attacks. Therefore, it is expected most hubs will require users use DC++ 0.851 for the general wealth of the network. And as usual, there are many tweaks here and there to make your DC++ experience more enjoyable! :)
