Installation problem: during the installation an error box pops up, "Could not open input file for splittet files"
I go to install Limewire and everything seems to be going well, but during the installation an error box pops up and it says, "Could not open input file for splittet files." I have no idea what that means. I have Mozilla Firefox internet, Java installed(as requested), Windows Vista. Please help.

1. Try this technique For Vista, you need to right-click installer & choose Run as Administrator. And do the same with the LW shortcut after installing. :)

2. Also try installing into a different location, unless that's inconvenient. ;)

downloard problems
hello. this is my first post :) I have Kaspery and I think my computer is 64 (instead of 32). I am experiencing the same splittet problem and was wondering if anyone had any idea how to have Kaspery and limewire. thank you!!

Kaspery? Do you mean Kaspersky security? If answer is yes, disable Windows firewall & add LW to the Kaspersky firewall exceptions under Filtration rules .. make a sub-rule for each of TCP & UDP. ;)

For installing LW, follow my advice in my previous post above. ;)

I also have the splittet problem & I'm not 15. That's closer to the number of years I've been on the internet. I have Kaspersky & limewire is allowed in the exceptions. I have Vista, Java 1.6, & I've been trying to update to LW5 all day & night. It seems no matter what I do it keeps stopping at the "splittet" error. Here's what comes up when I click details after getting the error:

Extract: torrent.dll... 100%
Output Folder: C:\Program Files\LimeWire\root
Output Folder: C:\Program Files\LimeWire\root\magnet10
Extract: badge.img... 100%
Extract: canHandle.img... 100%
Extract: limewire.gif
Extract: options.js... 100%
Extract: silentdetect.js... 100%
Output Folder: C:\Program Files\LimeWire

Does anyone have any ideas? I've already deleted preferences.

Have you tried right-clicking the installer, choose Run as Administrator, Then when asked where to install, choosing a different location rather than the default. Perhaps create a custom folder within program folder & calling it Limewire 5.2 & install there, or even installing it to a different partition.
