network error
I was using the classic LM and decided i wanted to upgrade to the limewire 2009 then all of sudden there was a message network connection error. I use windows vista and have been using limewire for the last month i am new at it and need some help to configure the problem. It saved all my music in the library and search reads that limewire is still loading....HELP!

LimeWire 2009 is a Scam version. :eek: Known Scam Sites (click on link). You occasionally see LimeWire2009 advertised at top of these forums or usually on google search pages. O.o :rolleyes:

Only get the official version from Lime Wire Download LimeWire

installed basic LW
I downloaded the exact same LW and a window popped up with a red x appears saying I have an older version of LW running and that I need to exit old one before continuing with installations(note LW may be runnining your system tray)right click on it and exit Im giving that a try but if that doesnt work then what other options do I have?

I have no idea what changes LimeWire2009 has so it may install a little differently.

Normally for LW to uninstall you go to Start menu -> All Programs -> LW -> Uninstall.

Check within the Programs folder itself, find that directory folder, look inside the LimeWire2009 folder & see if there is an uninstaller inside the program folder. After doing that, check Add/Remove Programs Control panel & see if it's listed. Normally you do not uninstall LW this way but LimeWire2009 might be different.

I'd recommend deleting your LimeWire2009 preferences folder & installing the 'real' LW from scratch, see on how to do.

Still no go i got a little more information how to make LW work on my computer and was wondering if i can have someone walk me thru what i need to do such as firewall is it supposed to be on or off? and norton anti virus ware so that it can recgonize LW on my computer and not see it as a threat.

Does your Norton have a firewall? Check for it. This is important because both Norton & Windows firewalls clash. So you should enable one & disable the other 'if' you also have Norton firewall.

1. Setting up an exception for LimeWire in your software firewall (click in link)
