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. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. 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 not running(REINSTALLING JAVA & LIMEWIRE DOESN'T WORK)

nobody has come up with a solution to this problem. every time a thread is posted everyone comes up with this stupid sugestion of reinstalling java and then reinstalling limewire. it just ****** the person off and doesnt solve the problem. im really really sorry guys if i sound a lil pissed but ive tried all this crap,
delete the folder ".limewire" preference folder
uninstall limewire
unistall java
reinstall java, the offline installer
reinstall limewire

none of this worked for me guys.

ive seen the same answer on every thread.
instead of wasting time doing this, i guess one would be better off reinstalling windows. cuz i think it takes the same amount of time.

So what ... are you using windows year 1782 or XP or wtf? Forum Rules (click here)

We don't have ESP here. We can only work or suggest upon what info users give us about their situation & set up. If they don't give us much then ...

Generally the problems with LW are with Java. That's why we suggest reinstalling Java offline. (Java is a well known problem even from game, online & other java app forums for related java installation problems!)

Have you tried Java 1.6 beta. But for LW to use it you'd need to remove all other java versions before installing & running LW. http://java.sun.com/javase/6/download.jsp JRE "Offline" version which is a 15.72 MB download

Oops looks like I was slow to post .... didn't see your previous post.

I'm having the same issues. I reinstalled LW and ^^^^^ this java ^^^^^. When I go to start LW it does the kitt thing (initializes everything in the small square box). then it shuts down without warning. i can't open any files through folders in my computer as that window shuts down. vlc player shuts down when i try to do a quick open file from the shared folder.

win xp if that helps

Your problem is not with any one piece of software but your whole installation, you will need to do a complete deletion, reformat and reinstallation of windows.

However, if this is beyond your capabilities then you will have to take your PC in for repair.

I would also suggest, if you take your machine in for repair, you get your motherboard (aka mainboard) checked out, there maybe something there causing your windows to shut down.

Try posting more specific info on setup first. Please try to answer all the questions. Sorry for any repeat questions. Just copy paste this + your answers into a reply


1. What's your connection like - do you have any green bars at all?
Is there a brick wall in front of world ?

2. Do this test & see if it works. What does it say ?
http://www3.limewire.com:6346

3. What are your details

OS ? (Win XP, Mac OSX etc.)
How much free harddiskspace ?
How much RAM ?
LW & Java version ? (In Limewire press Help>about LW & you'll see)
What Firewall you're using ?
What Antivirus/spyware etc. ?
Modem/router brand & model ?
Are you using portforwarding, UPnP or nothing ? (Tools>Options>Advanced>Firewall Config)
What is your listening port ? (Same as above)
ISP (Internet Service Provider) ?
Connection type ? (Dial-Up, ADSL, DSL etc) + Speed Up/Down if you know
Where you connect from (home, school etc)
Are you sharing a connection with other computers
Has Limewire ever worked for you ? If so how long have you been using it ?

Have you tried using any other P2P apps & if so, do you have the same or similar problems ?

Describe the problem thoroughly.
