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. 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 Solved: "java not found" during LimeWire installation

LimeWire: 5.8.8
Windows: Windows 7, possibly Windows Vista

Bottom Line: install your Java kits and Java upgrades with administrator privileges. (When running the jdk*.exe or jre*.exe, do a right click and select "Run as Administrator".)

Synopsis: I'd been having fits with LimeWire 5.8.8 and updates to Sun Java. It appears the real problem is one of permissions: install your Java kit as Administrator (or with administrator permissions), and LimeWire will install like a dream.

Background:
1. Installed LimeWire 5.8.8 on to Windows Vista Home SP 2 (32 bit), Sun Java JDK 1.6.0_18. The JDK was in the standard install location: c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_18. LimeWire came up like a champ, I was downloading and uploading songs five minutes after the LimeWire installation was complete.

2. Upgraded to Java JDK 1.6.0_20. LimeWire says that Java cannot be found, and I need to install/reinstall java. (JDK == Java Development Kit, includes the JRE (see below) and developer libraries and tools.)

3. Tried installing the Java JRE 1.6.0_20, standard target forlder. (JRE > Java Runtime Environment, minimum of binaries and libraries needed to run Java). Same problem, LimeWire could not find java.

4. What the heck, I upgraded my HP Pavilion from Windows Vista 32 bit to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Gave me more memory access, might solve the LimeWire / Java problem.

5. No joy. With LimeWire 5.8.8 and Sun Java JRE 1.6.0_20 64 bit, LimeWire cannot find the jre (java).

6. On a lark, decided to reinstall the jre as an administrator. Found the jre*.exe file, did a right click on the file, selected "Run as administrator". Installed in c:\Program Files\Java\jre6, the default folder for Java JRE 64 bit.

7. And to be safe, did a reinstall of LimeWire 5.8.8. (Very simple, very fast.) Ran with regular user privileges (did -not- select "Run as administrator").

8. JOY! LimeWire is working like a champ again. The key seemed to be installing the Java kit with administrator privileges.


My guess is this solution will work with Windows Vista, and likely applies to other Windows platforms. That is, install your Java kit with administrator privileges, then install LimeWire.

For Java upgrades, my guess is that if you install the Java upgrade with administrator privileges, where LimeWire has already been installed, you should be good to do. That is, the Java upgrade will occur over the current Java installation, and LimeWire won't know the difference (and will keep working).


Note: a new thread was started as this problem seems to be listed in numerous places on this board, and in many, many threads on other message boards.

Edit by LOTR: Also see http://www.gnutellaforums.com/window...tml#post348146 in regards to Java 6 and 7 issues. Or specifically Java 7 Limewire 5.6.2(pirate edition) and java 1.7
