I'd suggest re-installing. Use the "Offline" installer if you have it. Else get it from

I have this same problem.

Except for me, when I open Limewire (4.9.37) it gives me the same message and I press "ok." Then I can get into Limewire and download just like nothing happend. OK, so it sounds like it's not too big of a deal but after a day or so, Limewire isn't accessable at all.

After those few days, Limewire looks a little something like this...

I then have to redownload Limewire and it will work.... for about a day and have to repeat the process pretty much everytime I want to download something. Oh, and I have also tried the offline download.

Anyone else have any ideas? Thanks.

I have purchased limewire pro but it didn't download. When it asks for my email address & I put it in, it says it doesn't exist. What do I do now? I also purchased it before for a different computer so I assumed I had to purchase it again for the new one. ?

How long ago was that? And how much did you pay?

Usual reasons for not recognising email address:

* You used the incorrect email address to enter
* Your pro support has finished & your email information auto removed
* You did not purchase from but accidentally from a scam site.

Do you remember receiving emails from Pro sales / support previously. One with your download link? If not, then you didn't purchase from LW. Check your email addresses & see if any mail from pro still exists. Not sure why anybody would delete such an email anyway with their pro information on it.

I purchased it 2/18/09. I logged into it from the basic limewire that was downloaded on my computer. I paid like $30 for it, it was for a lifetime membership. I bought it through my paypal account. The 1st time I purchased it, about a year ago, it did download but I wasn't able to get tech suppost because it didn't recognize my email address. I have 2 different emails & have tried both but neither work.

No such thing as Lifetime membership. That in itself proves it was a scam site. Most scam sites offer Lifetime membership & unlimited downloads. You will see nothing of the kind at the official LW site.

My suggestion is to find out which site you paid, the people involved via your CC statement. Talk to your credit card company & tell them it was a scam. In many cases they will refund you. But you need to provide them with all the details. You will need to check your browser history for 2/18/09.

Perhaps the first time you did purchase it from the official site. But not the second time by the sounds of it. ;)

This is not very user friendly at all!!
When I open my Limewire and try to sign in it keeps telling me I have entered an invalid user name &/or Password!! I have printed your rules and regulations, which are terribly long to try to comprehend the whole thing!!! Can someone please help me login and how to use the forum section? Can't you make the whole process much more brief and concise?Also once I have downloaded a song I can't find it in My Documents/My music section.......why not??? HELP me please I am getting very frustrated!! It seems every time I click on the "Newbie" posts or how to instructions, I just takes me to the same series of pages over and over again!!!!! Maybe I'd better go back to the old version of was much simpler to access and comprehend!!!

Well you seem to be logged in fine now. :) Otherwise you would not have been able to post here. ;) Password & username is your responsibility after registering here. ;) However you would be able to retrieve either if you remember one of them at least. :)

Here's a starting point: Hope it helps :)

The GMail option in LimeWire has nothing whatsoever to do with these forums. That option is something else. Personally I do not know how it works, I haven't tried adding friends to it yet. That option is for sharing a range of files only between friends & being able to connect directly to them.
