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.

Arrow FIX: LimeWire won't start or closes immediately

I've been searching the web, this and other help forums... all resources available in order to resolve this issue:

LimeWire loads including core components opens up and shuts down immediately leaving behind a tray icon. Putting a mouse pointer over it makes the icon disappear.

I have gone through all exercises incl. reinstalling LW, Java, removing Alcohol120 drivers, disabling other virtual drives, cleaning registry, removing Limewire prefs folder, removing QuickTime... you name it, I've done it... to no avail. My disappointment was tremendous as LW has worked flawlessly and all of a sudden I was unable to use it anymore.
I've seen tons of posts regarding this behavior but no solution provided was working. Took me 2 days, on and off, to complete all the steps several times over but nothing has changed.
I gave up on LW and searched for other alternatives and came across FrostWire. The installation went smooth and to my surprise I've noticed that FrostWire is almost identical to LimeWire... so how come this installation worked...??? It seems to be Java based as well... looks the same...

well it gave me an idea to try:

installation of Limewire to a different folder, I chose the obvious... "Program Files/Limewire2".
Guess what... worked like a charm.

Both FrostWire and LimeWire work happily and after some small changes to shared resources (folders) there's no chance they can collide.

This is my first post to LimeWire forum, perhaps also the last. My issue is resolved and hope that by posting this "FIX" I can make someone do better things then spend hours troubleshooting LW.
My suggestion is simple: if your Java seems OK (like it was before...) and tests OK... (Java.com - verify installation) try the installation of LW to a different folder first. No doubt that in my case LimeWire has corrupted something, probably in the registry, and until you change the installation folder this setting will be automatically incorporated in a new install. There is no LimeWire regclean utility. The result is, most likely, that LW looks for Java components in all the wrong places.

I hope it works for you too.

errors I was getting:
access violation, invalid java call, EXCEPTION_FLT_STACK_CHECK, EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION etc. etc.

Exclamation Any other possible fixes?

I tried the Limewire2 folder on installation, have looked for Alcohol, but don't have it, so now I have tried every fix I have seen. I still get an interface that's opening but no application to open.

I have posted other cries for help with this problem, but maybe to the wrong thread? Look at my name for the problem as I posted before if you need more info.

I really would appreciate some assistance. I'm learning something at least!

Thanks.

Well, I have followed all the directions as far as I can tell. I have even gone so far as to download the JRE 5.0 Upd 11 for Java instead of using the v6, uninstalled all my spyware, and even closed AVG and Zone Alarm (even thought they were set to allow). I still have the same problem - it gives me the opening then just doesn't. No icon in tray, no application. I don't know what the problem could be - I had gone in and deleted all limewire from the registry, downloaded java and limewire offline, from links, - tried to open, failed, deleted the preferences folder, tried again - went through the brief setup, then still no application. Maybe I just need to do it all again, wiping clean all Limewire and java, use the Java 5.0 offline, limewire offline, and keep all security stuff off the whole time?? That's crazy, but I don't know what else I could do. My computer is haunted!

Thanks for your help - Lord, Proxy, etc... I'm at wits end - especially knowing people can use it, including a friend who's just started! (Sorry for double posting - would like to keep all on this thread)
