Can someone please post a link to old Limewire versions?
As the newest one I had doesn't work anymore.

Thankyou in advance. :idea:

I tried installing my archived version 4.16.6 and I get zero connections and a legal notice.
So I switched to FrostWire v4.21.1, which works just fine.

Old versions of LimeWire from 2001 to 2010 are available from OldApps:

5.5.10 is the latest version that still works:

You would probably need to update your file for LW 4.16.
My LW 4.16 often needs a fresh file to help it connect, but it does connect. And still brings up my favorite rare kind of files in search results.
On LW 4.16 just click on the white area to the side of the legal notice & it vanishes.

The bootstrap servers have been shut down, so all versions of LimeWire will require a file from now on. You can download a fresh file here:

That did the trick. :) LW v5.5.10 up and running for now just fine. Thanks much.

I hate to be dense, but what do I do with the file to get version 5.5.10 to work? Do I just take one line, copy it, & put it in somewhere on v.5.5.10? Anything you can do to straighten me out would be much appreciated. Mark

Birdy explains how in her first paragraph / quote here If LW 5 Will Not Connect :) ie: how to replace the file.

LW 5.5.10 will not connect without a fresh file. It may look complicated initially, but once you've done it once, you will realise the process was not so hard.
