Editors' review

EasyMule is a free, open-source, peer-to-peer file-sharing client. It's built upon, and enhances, the original eMule P2P network, which was conceived in 2002 as the eMule Project in response to dissatisfaction with the prototype eDonkey network. The eMule Project added a graphical user interface and other improvements that made sharing large files over the Internet much easier and more reliable for the geek-challenged users among us. In much the same way, EasyMule builds on the success of the eMule client with an enhanced graphical interface, faster downloads using fewer system resources, disk buffering for safety, and, according to the developer's Web site, "more humane new features," which sure sounds good, even it's fractured English translated from Chinese.

The new high-contrast interface certainly is colorful and attractive in the sense that it catches the eye easily, though some may find it distracting. EasyMule is easy to use, compared to eMule and other basic P2P clients. The only gripe we've noted is that you have to manually refresh the queue, which might be an advantage to some users, and it's still a bit buggy in newer editions of Windows, which is certainly not unusual as Windows 7 gradually replaces Vista and XP.

EasyMule is free to use, and it's certified for Windows 98, 2000, and XP. We tested it in Vista, and it worked well enough, though it does leave files behind when you uninstall it; not unusual for file-sharing software since you don't want it to remove your downloads too.

    "Keeps Crashing!"

    February 23, 2009   |   By katheyip

    Version: EasyMule 1.0.11

    Pros

    Easymule is much more user friendly compared to emule.
    Downloads are much faster.

    Cons

    Had to shut down easymule and restart easymule a few times a day to "refresh" the Queue list.

    Keeps Crashing

    Summary

    I liked using Easymule and the only gripe I had was that I had to restart easymule daily to "refresh" the Q list.

    The problems started last week.
    Windows Update automatically installed a new update circa 16/02/2009 and I have not been able to run easymule. It keeps crashing and I can't get in at all.

    Uninstalled and reinstalled more than 5 times, even running RegCure & Regsistry Booster fix/clean up. Finally, I had to run System Restore to a date BEFORE that Windows Update get easymule to work. I worked for a few days.

    Unfortunately, Windows Update struck again and this time, I couldn't get any System Restore to work. Been trying to get support and help. Unfortunately, googling for answers are not working, and as I can't read/write in Chinese, support is impossible.

    Windows Update & Easymule conflict need to be fixed!!!
