Default Bearshare crashing

Forum members,

I had been using Bearshare 5.2.5 forever. Yesterday when I opened it I was told that the program had expired. I could not find a new copy of that edition.

I downloaded 5.7.2. When I open it and try to download I get a message that Bearshare has encountered a problem. No other explanation.

This used to happen to me all the time with Bearshare 5.2.5 until I set port forwarding on my computer to port 14000. Never had the problem again.

When I installed 5.7.2 I changed the port to 14000 under "connections." However, 5.7.2 keeps crashing.

I just read about Bearshare from previous threads. I tried the last beta version and the utility but the utility wouldn't run.

Is 5.7.2 unstable or is this something happening because of the events described in this thread?

Any suggestions?
