Keeps shutting down when not attended
Hi, hope someone has a solution. My Limewire Pro (4.10.9) keeps shutting down on me. Frusterates the hell out of me when I have kicked off a download and come back 30 mins later and it has gone, shut error shows, starts up fine, searches fine, no real symptoms other than sgutting down.
Hope someone can help or has a suggestion.

How many Uploads do you have set, In Uploads/ slots, Per Person & Max.

Ps. LimeWire shuts down,or your Computer shuts down.

The program shuts down. Everything else seems fine. When it doesnt shut down it appears to operate as expected. I keep leaving it downloading and when I return say 1/2 hr later it has shut down. I havent actually SEEN it shut down, it's always while I am away. :bangh:

I only have 1 upload max and 1 per person

This could sound like a memory issue, but also could be some curruption either in Limewire itself, or in the Java you use for it.

Could you tell us:

Java version
How much RAM

Also have you tried updating Java or deleting the preference folder for Limewire?:

memory = 2 Gb
Not sure how to tell Java version...can you advise?
Havent tried to delete preference folder..

I will download the latest Java version and try deleting the .Limewire folder and report back tomorrow. Thanks for trying to help...hope it works.

Well you will see Java Version anyway when removing it before installing upgrade, but usually you can in Limewire go to Help-->About Limewire and it will show both Limewire and Java versions.

Also your preference folder (unless you had Limewire for a long time) will just be called Limewire and will be located in Application Data (Hidden Folder)

2 GB Ram ismore than enough to run Limewire and other programs at the same time, so that's not the problem.

Limewire shuts down as soon as I turn my back!
I'm having this issue too! Limewire is shutting down on it's own when I'm not at the computer for more than 10 min or so.

Has anyone had and then successfully solved this problem?

I'm running Limewire Pro v.4.12.3.
I recently installed the Java version recommended by the "Fix Limewire" thread: Java 1.5.0_10

Other specs:
Win XP Media Center
1 Gig Memory
17 Gigs free HD space
80 files shared on Limewire
Default settings

Already tried deleting the preference folders: .limewire and all that.

I had this problem once and tried checking the box for "Show incoming searches" in the monitor window. It seemed to help a bit. I really don't know of a solution, but have almost the exact same specs as you (Well java version was update 6 or something like that)

Did you have the problem before updating the Java?
