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.

I tried that after you posted it. Nope, still a no go.

I even tried running it in compatibility for XP SP2 and still nothing.

And of course I've tried running all of it as administrator and even tried installing to a location other than default.

PLEASE HELP

Which version of LW are you trying to install?

Which version of Java are you using? Do you only have one Java version installed on your computer?
If you've already updated your Java to the latest version, try this older version of Java 6 (if you're trying to install LW 5 then you'll need Java 6 & so the other older Java mentioned earlier in the thread will be no good): Archive: Download Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE) 6u5
Install that Java, reboot & then see whether LW will install properly.

If you're trying to install LW 5 basic, you could try installing LW 4 basic & see whether you get the same error. You can download 4.18.8 from LW's older versions page: Lime Wire » Download Out-Of-Date Installers

If you have Pro, you can download 4.18.8 by clicking on the 'Get LW PRO Classic' link on the left of your personal download page.

Read this before installing an older version of LW: Just make sure that you have your current installer saved, because installing another version of LW will remove whatever you have installed at the moment. And if you have a Pro version which you can't update - you would lose that version!!

If you can install LW 4 without a problem, just try installing LW 5 & let it automatically uninstall LW 4... don't uninstall LW 4 first. See whether that makes any difference.

I've tried old and new versions of LimeWire BASIC, I've tried older & newer versions of Java.

Nothing is working. I've got the latest version of Java running right now and it was just updated a few hours ago. I tried going back to install LimeWire (with a shred of hope that it might finally work) and still nothing.

I appreciate all of the help you guys are giving, cuz I'm sure there are still people out there with this problem.

Trust me though, so far, everything you guys have mentioned, I've already tried, and nothing has worked so far.

Sorry that you're having such a PITA with this I'm not sure if I can help much more - maybe somebody else will have more ideas?

Just a couple of questions - are you using 32 bit or 64 bit Vista? Which JRE versions have you been downloading - Windows or Windows x64?

You probably did, but when you went through this link from post #2 Limewires pop up screens not clickable... did you run both CCleaner and the MS cleanup utility?

I'm using Vista 32-bit .

I'm not sure which JRE version I downloaded bcos I didn't download it from the link you posted in an earlier posting. Instead, I got it from the Java software updater that came with the software.

As for the clean-up utilities I dont remember downloading either!

I think this problem arose due to an out-dated Java version. So, the best advice I could give anyone out there intending to install the latest version of LW (Version 5?) is:
Step 1. To check your Java version (you can do this in Control Panel at the Start menu. Click on the Java icon; in the General tab, click 'About...');

Step 2. Go to Drive C: and then to 'Program Files' and delete the LW file;

Step 3. Install the latest Java version (in the 'Update' tab);

Step 4. Install the latest LW version from the LW website;

Which are really your suggested solutions and they worked!
So, thanks!!!

Red face Hey Alpha Wolf

I'm really not sure of the root cause of your problem. I say this because there could (Note: JUST MAYBE) other problems that led to this? I don't know, anyone out there thinks so too? Cos I'm no PC whiz!

Have you tried Google-ing the solution? That helps too sometimes!

Download LW, save it to computer (don't run). Pause Kaspersky Antivirus. Open download and install. Seems the problem is Kaspersky. Worked for me. Thanks LOTR for offering your adivce.
I just got a new PC with Kaspersky.......that WAS the problem. THANKS!
