Cannot open limewire
I have downloaded limewire. I try to open it but except a short image nothing works.
Why not?

I am misssing a dll file. It is mscr71.dll and I have downloaded this file . Where does it go?? I have put it in the same folder as limewire and it makes no difference

Hey, I couldn't find mscr71 but I did find msvcr71.dll. Anyway, use your windows search facility to find the folder or folders where this dll should go.

The search function does not work for location. I have this file in a download directory and am not sure where it should go.
I did not have the file previouly

Likewise I only found msvcr71.dll & at following locations (excluding Vuse & NeoNapster):

Windows XP:
C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin
C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\new_plugin

Windows 7:
C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\LimeWire\br owser\xulrunner
C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\D eployment\cache\6.0\54\1a209876-509cd367-n
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\new_plugin

(on my browser a space appears in middle of two addresses above, that's not intentional, not sure why it's doing that.)

Looks like deleting the LW Preferences folder might be one thing to try.

Other than that, repeat the reinstallation process for both Java & LW including using CrapCleaner to clean registry. Deleting the LW Preferences folder. Then reinstalling both Java & LW. You will most likely need to reboot computer after reinstalling Java. This is usually recommended. ;)
