Default DO NOT UPDATE your LimeWire version: LW still works fine with version 5.5.10, but do not attempt to use later version !!!

Looks like the money grabbing nazis have stuck their boots in to stop the use of LW or limit its use.

Therefore I strongly recommend you ignore their update suggestions & stay with the version of LW you have. LW 4 does not have force update options, neither do versions 5.5.10 or earlier.

You can still use LW 5 if you downgrade back to LW 5.5.10. Basic instructions are here: Hello Out There

Recommended is WireShare. WireShare 5.6.3 released March 2014 is an upgrade from LimeWire Pirate Edition 5.6.2. WireShare has an inclusive installer for connection file & hostiles. WireShare includes several improvements which fix the Java 7 issue, no deletion of the connection file, & some other bug fixes & improvements.

Installers are found here: LW installers for Windows _ and _ LW installers for Mac OSX _ and _ LW 5 that works for Linux.

* Note: LW 5 will not connect without a fresh Gnutella.net file so follow those instructions.

To stop the Legal notice on start window, simply click Library tab & it will vanish. For LW 4, simply click on the white area or do a search.
