Please Help!! javaw error
Please Help!! Every time I run limewire(1.6), I get an javaw error and limewire closes. I can usually re-open it without restarting my computer, but why is this happening and how can I fix it?? I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice now.

Perhaps you could try re-installing JAVA 2 Runtime Environment?

I have reinstalled limewire and java twice now, once through limewire and the second time I installed java through their site, then installed limewire. Any other options??

Your not the only one, I got this error after cleaning up un-needed files in my windows directory. Before anybody tells me what a silly boy I am I'd just like to point out that it was the 'cookies' 'favorites' and 'temporary internet files' directories that I deleted, and I don't use IE (I've never installed, having disabled it in Windows 95 setup)

I use Opera 5.12 as my browser and the Java distro that comes with it.

Could you please write out exactly what the error message says? I might be able to help you out a little better if I know what error message you're receiving.

I've gotten several different ones, but the one that happens most often is javaw had caused and error in JVM.DLL and limewire will now close. Usually I can just start it back up again, but sometimes it resets my computer or won't open at all. I also reinstalled java for the third time and it didn't help.

I'm running....
Windows 95 OSR2 (minus IE3)
Sun Java Plugin 1.3.1_01
Opera 5.12
Limewire 1.7

Uninstalling Java and Limewire and then re-installing has no effect. However calling up an earlier copy of my Windows folder, does make it work.... for at least another two runs... after which it goes back to the Java error.

My brother says that's what you get for using Java, but he's a Microserf so any help to prove him wrong would be appreciated!

Java is not in my arena. Sorry.

I have found that reformatting and re-installing everything can fix a lot of problems, but that becomes a pain after a while......

This sounds like the infamous javaw problem with 1.5 (But not quite as infamous as the problem, which I solved). The file just isn't there. Download it here, and put it where it wants it.

I tried this, and it didn't work for me. Am I doing something wrong? I am running (trying to!) limewire 1.8 in windows 98. javaw appears on my hard drive, but I keep getting the above mentioned illegal operation.... please help!!!
