Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

OK , it's up .
After I made some alterations .

You should not spread limewire.props and the .dll files , it will dynamicly create them .
Besides limewire.props is diffrerent for every configuration .
I cleared out the junk we don't need .

Take a look : http://users.pandora.be/karel.boonen...Wire_2.0.3.zip

Thank you very much VTOLfreak.
I really appreciate your willingness to host.
:-)
LimeWire comes with the props file and *.dll files by default, so I prefer no to remove them. It also doesn't have a shortcut launcher anymore. But I've made a note of the changes on the download page.

Thanks again!

I will leave out the .props file in the next release so that LimeWire configures itself according to the user's need.

You don't need to keep the .dll files in the zip either !

What do you think a .jar file is ?

jar = Java ARchive

The dll's are already packed inside one of the jar's !

It will automaticly "extract" them if it finds there not there .
So if you keep them in the zip your packing 2 copies of the same file .

You don't need the launcher or shortcut anymore .
Just starting the RunLime.jar file will start LimeWire like normal .

You know how the latest Java runtime packages register the .jar format ?
The description they give to the .jar format is "Executable Jar File"
Wouldn't that suggest that you can simply doubleclick the file to start it if you have a recent Java runtime installed ?
With recent I mean Java runtime +1.3 .

PS: Where is the download page I'm hosting for ?

We apologize that we couldn't respond faster.
Have you investigated who is responsible?

There are some other clients with the same problem... all are using ads/spyware...

so there must be a company (or companies) which is not honest... find it...

Crohrs you should investigate better which kind of software you bundle... nobody trust them and now you see why...

This is no offense! But if you and the other developers don´t start to check the bundled software, "all" P2P clients which are using this software are a security risk...

Hi Morgwen. I think you have some good points. We try to investigate all our bundled software carefully. But these vendors don't include source code, so at some point we have to just trust their word. I was under the impression that clicktilluwin just installed an icon. Other vendors--BearShare, Kazaa, and Grokster--were burned by this as well.

In the future, we hope to stick with a small number of trusted vendors. We are also becoming increasingly vigilant. For example, when LimeWire users reported seeing Aureate on their systems we investigated carefully. In this case it turned out that it was a false alarm caused by the cache of the Cydoor ad delivery system. We would have NEVER installed Aureate.

Yes, the newer version of Clean LimeWire (2.0.4) does not keep these dlls or props in there. But I must correct you on something. A .jar file is an archive. Similar to a zip, but different. They are not executable in the sense that .exe files are. Did you try launching it in the manner you are describing? It doesn't work. You have to execute the javaw.exe process and tell it where to look for a java file, and in this case, it's in a jar. This command is used to launch it:
"C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3.1\bin\javaw.exe" -cp . RunLime
and you have to be running it from the appropriate folder:
"C:\Program Files\LimeWire\1.7c"
CP stands for class (path). Runlime.class is a java file found inside Runlime.jar. So making a shortcut is difficult. Not very simple compared to making a shortcut to a .exe file. Of course, the exact directories are variable (which will be addressed in the next release), and it makes creating an installer a more complicated process than you would think.

:-)

Sincerely,
TruStarWarrior

If you would like to explore the archives yourself, check out WinRAR.

I can leave the net file out with no problems. You could potentially use it to steer the user to connect to a certain address at startup time, but that's not really necessary.

ttyl!

Ok, this is my first post here, and frankly, I don't plan on registering. I just thought I should let you know what all of this looks like to an outsider.

First there is ther trojan problem, which is compounded by the spyware. There is no acknowledgement of either of these two issues on the main page. This looks to the average person that there is something to be hidden. Added to this is that the trojan is still present in the software, and there is no apparent measures being taken. This problem has been publicized on some VERY popular websites. The failure to address this is a MAJOR PR mistake. Where they could have turned this around and gained a favorable reputation, they have decided to bury the issue. All of this, plus the issues in this thread alone, are enough to make anyone question if it's in their best interest to use this software.

To be honest, I can't, in all concience, reccomend this software to anyone anymore. I suggest the moderators, and the company providing this software, work together to solve this.
