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.

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 Cabos won't start

Hi;
I'm new to this forum and hope I've gotten on a proper thread. I've used Cabos for quite a few years and it works fine on my old computer, but not on a new computer I just purchased.

Both computers run Windows 10 home 64 bit
Both computers are behind the same router and firewall
Both use version 0.8.2
High speed cable 100meg+
Running Java 7 64 bit new computer
Running Java 8 64 bit old computer
Both have 8gb main memory


The first computer works fine on Cabos, starting and connecting.
The second won't start at all, nothing.

Can anyone help? I would also be willing to change to a different client if that would work better.

Thanks very much.

The latest Windows I have is Win 8 so I can't check for Win 10 issues and compatibility.

The fact you have one working on Win 10 already suggests it's obviously not necessarily a Win 10 issue. Have you considered updating your java 7 to 8 on the new computer? Java 8 is less buggy.

Try these things:

1. Sometimes the issue is java related. Uninstalling java, then re-installing java specifically using the 'Offline' java installer has often in the past fixed many issues. The 'Offline' installer is much larger and incorporates all data required within the installer itself instead of downloading the data during the installation process. This is the most reliable way to install java. The size of the installer is over 50 MB. Carefully check the installer options, they normally want to install unnecessary 3rd party junkware which you can opt out of. https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
~ Might be wise to also set the Java installer to 'Run as Administrator'.

If that does not fix the issue then:

2. Try changing the Cabos program properties permissions to 'Run as Administrator'.
If that has no effect, try:
3. Change the Cabos compatibility mode to an earlier Windows version.


(Off-topic: I haven't been able to run Cabos on MacOSX for several years. So I instead point people to Acqlite to use instead which is an OSX only equivalent. (Acqlite is a nicer program IMHO in any case.))

Thanks for the quick and detailed reply. As recommended, I uninstalled Java 7 and loaded the offline version of Java 8, but no improvement.

I attempted to 'run as administrator', also with no improvement.

Finally, I ran in compatibility mode (winXP) with the same result. I also tried every permutation of the above suggestions.

I forgot to mention in my original post that I had applied the Cabos ConnectFix 18 July 2016 before contacting the forum.

So far, no joy. I appreciate your help and if you have any other suggestions or alternate clients for Windows OS, I'd love to hear them.

Again, thanks.
Dean Park

I presume Cabos is allowed within the firewall's allowed programs?

What's the hardware (or software) differences between your two computers?

I am starting to wonder if you have a security software such as a 3rd party firewall, virus or other security software that might be blocking Cabos from being allowed to launch.

3rd party security software is often packaged within other software installers or even the computer itself upon purchase.

1. Try uninstalling and then re-installing Cabos, this time with Admin permissions (that appears to make a difference with some lime code based programs run on systems greater than Win XP.)

2. Set up a temporary alternative account on computer and see if Cabos runs from there. You might also (at a later point) try setting the account to admin permissions, re-logging in after doing so to refresh the account permissions.

Sorry if this seems like a lot of things to try, but your problem might also affect someone else so if we can find a solution then it's good for all.

Thanks, once again, for your suggestions. I verified that there are no software firewalls enabled on either computer. They are behind a hardware firewall and since Cabos works on the other computer, it can't be the firewall. The computers do use differing anti-virus software, so I turned off windows defender on the new one. I uninstalled and re-installed Cabos and ran with administrator privileges [although my user name is an administrator]. Also, the other computer [the one that works on Cabos], runs Cabos without administrator privileges and without compatibility mode.

There should't be any software differences between the computers; same version of the OS. However, they differ significantly on hardware. The older computer is a standard Gateway PC tower with 8g of memory and a 1T hard drive. The new one is an Acer clone of the Surface Pro 4 - Intel i7, 8g, 512g.

Finally, I tried setting up a temporary account with the settings you suggested. After all of that, Cabos still won't launch.

I assume most of these clients have similar coding. Might another one be more successful or, perhaps, should I just be happy that it works on one of them? I think I've bothered you enough.

Thanks,
Dean

Often a corrupt java installation is a reason a program won't run. But you've reinstalled appropriately so it looks like this is not the problem. No 3rd party security apps identified as preventing Cabos launching. So it might be easier to try another app as you suggested.

The better options of other programs to try would be:
WireShare or GTK-Gnutella or Phex or FrostWire.
WireShare is a follow-on of LimeWire Pirate Edition; though its technology is presently walking in circles between 2005 and 2010. GTK-G' is still being actively developed & is the most advanced gnutella program on the network. GTK-G' is not the most intuitive program to use for new users however. Phex has not been worked upon since 2009 and FrostWire since 2011.

Phex was probably the first gnutella client I tried back in 2002 but I found LimeWire more intuitive to use. Phex is lighter-weight than WireShare but does tend to result in more bandwidth overhead - but only if running as an ultrapeer. FrostWire is also slightly lighter in weight than WireShare as far as computer cpu & memory demands go. All these programs require java with the exception of GTK-Gnutella which is written in C++.

Note: If you wish to try Phex it might even be a good idea to get in contact with h4x5h17 via private message because he has compiled his own updated version of Phex.

I've had a re-think about your Cabos problem and why it works on one Win 10 and not the other. Presumably your older computer inherited the same permissions when upgrading to Windows 10. There might be a new security feature in Windows 10 that affects unknown apps. MacOSX has had something similar for the past 5 years, where 3rd party developers need to pay a fee & have their app go through a licensing process for their app to be recognised automatically by the system as being a safe app to open.
Another aspect to this is if the original program hash changes to that of what the system has recorded for it. This could have changed if you updated the Cabos hostiles file which is stored within the Cabos application folder.

Googling the problem I came across Windows 10 Apps Won't Open: Full Guide to Fix (ignore the sub-link advertisements at beginning & sides of the article.) I would recommend you consider backups, etc. before you try anything like this, if you consider it that is.

I installed WireShare. It worked the first time I tried it. I just have to accept a bit of a learning curve in using it.

Thanks for your help and patience. I appreciate you.
