Mirror 1: via SaberCat here. (Easiest option!)
Mirror 2: From a GoogleDrive folder here. GoogleDrive instructions here using LW as an example.
Mirror 3: FrostWire versions, choose from a folder. But you need to be registered at 4Shared to download from this folder. Be very wary of download links except those that say free download.


If the .NetworkShare folder inside FrostWire preferences folder should add a file for share it...You can easy disable the sharing of the file by click "Library" and go to the left side of FrostWire and click on "Individually Shared Files"...You should find the file there and click on the file for so choose "Stop Sharing file" and thats all to do!:rolleyes_2:

If you can't find the FrostWire prefereces folder, use this trick here:

Click on "Start" and click on "Run", now copy and past this code here:

Code:

%APPDATA%\FrostWire
Then click "OK" ,now you are inside in the FrostWire preferences folder!


VIP Info: If you see in connections window of FrostWire this client here LimeWire 4.21.1 (rc), just remove it before you do any search because it is a spam bot! Likewise for any LimeWire 5.1.2

wow I agree to no auto-update. Such a dangerous tool. We saw what happened with LimeWire & its auto-updating tool after LW 5.5.10.

And who needs or wants advertising or toolbars especially without their permission installed on their system. Some people or companies sell themselves out. Does anybody care about the client users hey ! ? :D

Getting marketing phone calls from early morning to evening & even on weekends. hmm why does it remind me of the 'unclean' FrostWire they offer at their site. Glad to see a clean version. ;)

Although I no longer user P2P as I used to back in the old days, I still like to dabble occasionally with Frostwire.

So, I think I will download this, when I get home tonight, and give it a try.

Tell me, do either of you guys know if this new installation of FW will overwrite my old version but keep my current settings?

It should keep your old settings yes. But will probably uninstall your previous FW program. ;) BTW you will get an update notice about a newer version, click cancel on it. At least it does not auto-update without your permission. :)

Auto-update is such a scary tool. God knows what the newer version may have in it, also what bugs. This applies to any program. I often like to check user feedback reports about the updates on some programs before 'choosing' to update. Especially if it's professional software I work with for a living.

File_Girl71 November 9th, 2010 12:39 PM

I don't think my installer would uninstall your old version of FrostWire by default, but it will use your setting where the preferences folder is on your system! If you install the new version on the same directory and same plase where you have the old one it will only overwrite it if the files in my installer is newer then the FW you have installed before...What you can do is take a backup of the old version before you install the new one, so you could easy restore the old one with out have to install it again so to speak!

Guys, thanks for your info, I will install the bundle free version of FW over my current version.

I'll let you know if it goes wrong.



UK Bob

PS. File_Girl71, I may still do a backup before performing the installation.

BTW, you're miss understanding the "auto-update" feature. It's more of a "auto-download-the-installer" feature. The user can decide wether or not to start the installer.

What is wrong with the usual optional "available update" notifications, which thousands upon thousands of programs have no trouble using?

gubatron November 27th, 2010 11:26 AM

It's always had one like that but a lot of people get lost into going to frostwire.com and downloading the installer.

What we can do to address any of the concerns of auto downloading and helping seed the installer is to put an opt-out setting

[x] Auto download the latest installer for me

If they have that off, they'll just keep getting the old message where they can manually go and download the installer from the website.

Since FW closely followed LW's code, did it include the same auto-update features which could potentially be turned around at any point in time to do what FW wanted (under pressure from ...) After all, this is one of the concerns. Auto-update could easily be turned into an update into anything, might even end up installing lemons or elephants or RIAA remote controlled items or other spy items.

Below is LW's forced update, user had no choice other than to force quit the program. Changing from voluntary to forced update is obviously easily possible with the program update code / concept you have put in. Users will become accustom to it without realising the potential dangers, until one day suddenly, their program is hijacked & no longer works because FW was forced to give them a non working program. That kind of control I'm sure most users would prefer to keep to themselves rather than have it forced upon them. Choice of updating should be up to user, if they wish to stay with v. 4.x then they should have option to turn off update messages. Nobody likes nags on programs.

I must say, I am highly confused as to where to find the Update preferences in Frostwire 4.21. Where is it hidden may I ask?
(obviously not in same locations as LW 4 or 5. LW had a special preferences location for update preferences.)

BTW if what I suggested is incorrect, then my apologies but the gnutella community needs to be clear on this. Is FW setting themselves up without realising?
