Winny, How to set it up, how to use it?

I just downloaded Winny beta 2 7.1, but I couldn’t get it to work. It seems like I need to connect to some nodes before I can search and download. Is there a English (or Chinese) site that tells you how to set it up? I can read very limited Japanese (but I can read the kanji), but I need to find a file that’s not available on BT or ed2k. Thanks.

maybe you should use an easier one like bitcoment or soemthing for torrents and all that.

Winny was shut down and only runs with patched clients now. The successor is called “Share”.
