STILL LIMEWIRE WILL NOT CONNECT Windows 7
 
I have Downloaded The Pirate Edition Of Limewire the day before yesterday.. BEEN STRUGGLING EVER SINCE.. I stublbled upon the Very Nice Site of Gnutella, AND THE Reccomended 2012 Youtube Video on this Issue, I followed the Steps Exactly As the Video and Steps in the Gnutella PAGE..

NO LUCK Same Issues, I went to Firewall Settings and Limewire Is an Allowed Program..

I Had No Idea it would be this Much BS just to get the program that alot seem to be running with no problem.. I have It JUST WONT Connect I have Spent a Few hours and Trys Shut downs Restarts, on off in and out of limewire Using the Instructed dowload... NO LUCK AT All... About to give up..

Any Advice, Is is Becuase Windows 7.. But Remember back when I had OG Limewire like 8 years ago Connecting Was a Big PAIN as Well.

I have a PErfect Internet Connect and Everything I DONT UNDERSTAND!
ANY HELP !? PLEASE?

For Windows 7, you MUST set Java to Run As Administrator. Otherwise LW will not connect. You can achieve this easily for LimeWire by right-clicking the short-cut on desktop. But for Java, it would probably be easier to reinstall Java 1.6 (Java 6). Right-click the Java 1.6 installer and choose Run as Administrator. See how things go for connecting after that. :) Download the Java 1.6 installer and then follow the prior instructions: Direct Java offline download link ;)
(Please note, LW5/LPE do not run with the present version of Java 1.7.)

I will try the link
 
Alright I will Try this Link.. you Posted, Thanks for The Help.

I am Pretty good with Computers, But not so good with the Technical Stuff Programs and Software Etc. How they work together Etc..

So Excuse the lack of knowledge on this topic and maybe easy or obvious Questions for some..

I have bearshare now Cuz I kinda Gave up on the Limewire after much frustration.. Not sure What is Better..?

Alright.. so I Downloaded The Java Link that You provided..
But a Little Confused about the First Line or Two in your Reply Above..
"You can achieve this easily for LimeWire by right-clicking the short-cut on desktop. But for Java, it would probably be easier to reinstall Java 1.6 (Java 6). Right-click the Java 1.6 installer and choose Run as Administrator."
Are you Saying right Click on The Shortcut for What..? Limewire? Then Click Run as Administrator on the Limewire Shortcut After Installing the JAva Link provided.?
I assume this is What you meant, as there is no Java Shortcut/Desktop Icon.

Moved the JAva Link Download that you sent to the Desktop and Right clicked and Set run as Admin. Then Opened Limewire.. Becuase Setting LW as Admin Did Nothing..
So trying Both Running as Admin Neither Worked.. Justg Tried Java as Admin.. Then Just Opened LW about 8 Minutes ago and still same Issue "Connecting...."
I dont Get why This has been So Much trouble for me..

I Smell Attitude as well from this Post! Also I Sense real Sensitive Guy.. from these words...lol
Had I Known you were So Sensitive I would Have used Really Super Nice Words and inserted a smiley face or two, to ensure to you I was friendly, and adhere to the sensitivity.
Didnt Think I had to use a Smiley Faces as I thought we were adults and could communicate on a serious Level.

Here we go Typically of Forum Sites... All the BIG BAD Boys Who think they Have Accomplished something With There Long time Membership Picking on the New guy..lol So Typical.

When In reality most of Ya'll are Burger King employees, Why I am Quiting this Forum After My first post.
And I am sure I will get A reply to this Something Like this: "Actually I run My own Business and or CEO and have a Masters or Doctorate.. Or something along those lines.. To try and prove my Above statement wrong.
Now The attitude HAS come out.
All I asked was a simple question, had someone nice enough to answer but then I ellaborated with a follow question to his reply becuase I truly didnt know, as you can see I am new and Explained I am New to this.. So I was Even pointing out that I am illiterate on this subject.. Guess he didnt Get it and took it as an Attitude.

IF Lord of The Rings Was "Done" And sensed a True attitude then the Adult thing to do was not to reply at all. If he truly felt an Attitude. Instead he Assumed I had an Attitude and Stirred up %$#. (oh so Often in these forums.) If I had been a member here for sometime and Not the NEW Guy, the users above would have been a little nicer...
Users Who gang up on New Users ALWAYS Hault the forums ability to grow! I Know the Moderators see this, unless they are part of this as well.
Always good to welcome new members, Instead of acting like in High School or Middle School and Trying to look Cool in bunches and Push people out of here.
First Post and I am gone.
