Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Limewire 5.6.2(pirate edition) and java 1.7

Hello, I recently installed java 1.7 and now limewire won't start, says limewire needs java 6 or higher to run. Downgrading to java 1.6 just to run limewire doesn't sound good to me. Any help?

Features for Java 7 ie: It is not a finalised version yet. That generally means it is equivalent to a beta or alpha version. (build 1.7.0-b14) suggests a beta version.

On Windows 7, I downloaded Java 1.7 64 bit, right-clicked & chose run as Admin, then installed. LPE ran fine.

On Windows XP, a different story. Same as yours. I'd suggest downgrading back to Java 1.6 for now until Java is 'officially' released. I suspect the 32-bit version Java is lacking some full abilities at present. Perhaps certificates or such.

However, Phex seems to run fine under Java 1.7 on Windows XP.

downgrading to java 1.6 works, so I installed LPE in virtual machine running xp (since I already need VM for a project) so it works now, thanks.

Which Windows OS are you using? If you are using XP or earlier, you may need to downgrade to Java 1.6 (would need to uninstall Java 1.7 via the Add/Remove Programs control panel.) I had to do the same on my XP. For Windows 7, LW works fine with Java 1.7.

I'm not so sure the Java 1.7 available at present is the final official release, otherwise it would become the default Java download. I suspect the Java 1.7 presently available is a kind of beta version. It does not seem to have full 32 bit abilities re-added to it yet. 64 bit Java works fine and that is obviously what they were concentrating on. I read something at the Java site in reference to Java 1.7 32 bit but it was not highly informative, just suggestive that it may be lacking some abilities or contain some bugs.

If installing Java for Windows 7 or Vista, you should right-click the Java installer & choose Run as Administrator. This is necessary for LW for Windows 7 & beneficial for Vista.

I installed Limewire on my laptop in the spring, when I bought it (Windows 7) and it worked just fine. Now it's not connecting.

At first I thought it was because I was using Wifi at malls and McDonald's, but now I'm connected to someone's wifi in the house, still not connected.

Any suggestions?

More of a description of your set up might help. Sounds like you use a portable computer (laptop)?

Have you done any Java updates in the meantime since spring? Find the Java.exe file, right-click & choose/set to Run as Administrator. On Windows 7 this can be very important for LPE to function properly.

Then, make sure LPE is set to run as administrator. Right-click the LW shortcut & choose Run as Administrator.

If this does not help with the connection, then try deleting the LW preferences folder whilst LW is closed: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/genera...ndows-7-a.html. You might wish to make a copy of the downloads file (downloads.dat) before deleting the preferences folder. After this, you will need to do all the settings again.

Beyond the above suggestions, check If LW 5 Will Not Connect

Let us know if any of these helped.

Yes, it's a laptop. I have Java Sprict 6 Update 26. Not sure where you want me to right click, though?

The Java.exe file, right-click it & choose Run as Admin. It's found here:
c:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java

Perhaps easier, the other option is to re-install Java. Before installing you right-click the Java installer & choose Run as Admin. This of course is easiest if you download the Offline installer. Direct Java offline download link.

I tried using that link, since the first set of instructions in your last reply, I didn't understand.

It didn't work, I got a message saying it "timed out".

Where do I find this java scpript to right click on it? Control Panel?
