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'm not sure about Windows 7 in comparison to Vista. But try right-clicking the LW shortcut & choose Run as Administrator. This might help your situation, not sure.
Did you install using the Offline installer? http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp It's about 15 MB in size.

Make sure there are no older versions of Java on your system. Check Add/Remove Programs control panel. Also run this utility Crap Cleaner to clean up registry, click on the Registry tab on left-hand side after you open it.

Try this version Installing using the "Other ?" installer simply unzip & use. This one might have better luck.

BTW go to Control panel, find the Java control panel & check the options. Under Java -> View, it should say which version is installed & if it is enabled or not. It needs to be Java 1.6 for LW 5.

I presume you rebooted your system after installing Java? Some people don't realise you need to do that for the new update or installation to become active.

Did Java version show up under the Java control panel -> Java -> View? If it shows there, it can be enabled by clicking the check box to the right side of it.

Another option is you set up a Test account 'with' Administration permissions. Install Java, set the Java to be enabled for the System via the Java control panel. (Setting up new accounts is easy; easy to add or remove. Such as via Computer Management CP.)
Use the Offline Java installer.

BTW I gave it a 5 star Rating, since it wlll most likely find people in a similar scenario.

Edited to provide more info: New computer Windows 7 64 bit LW wont run

Which version of Java should I download for my Windows 64-bit operating system? . (Has links to both 32 and 64 bit Java installers)


Another post to look at is this one: Solved: "java not found" during LimeWire installation

* Set both LW and Java installers to run as Administrator by right-clicking them & choosing that option before installing either of them. (For LW you can right-click the shortcut on desktop & choose 'Run as Admin' option after installing (Sample image), to do equivalent with Java is a little more tricky, see above "Java not found" link in point #6.)

Edit: (a) LW 5 and LPE will not launch with Java 7 (1.7) directly. A workaround fix was found by pongo1 here Limewire 5.6.2(pirate edition) and java 1.7
LW 4 versions are unaffected and will happily run under Java 7.

I like LimeWire. But java is what i hate! "no java runtime environment installed" - answer found! Post #9 re: Java 7-java-cp.gif (click attachment to see full-size)

(b) 64-Bit Java 7 Update problems.

The newest update of Java 7: the 32-bit Java should be updated last. Otherwise a problem will occur with (a) java error when opening LW, (b) LW changing it's download location and location of settings.
