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.

I keep coming back to your post - wonder why? Anyway I'm afraid I have failed to download your version because I couldn't get past filecloud.io. I try to register and it keeps telling me ‘username entered is too short’. I even put in all 26 letters of the alphabet in a string in order and that was too short also! I've sent them an email asking them what the hell they require.

Meanwhile I think I'll read your posting again...

Just installed Limewire for the 3rd time. Have used it successfully the previous twice over the years but this time I start a search for Audio - Artist James ***/Jackson *** (tried both) and nothing happens - just the whirring cursor in the middle of the screen. I've had this problem before and it was a simple solution - wish I could remember it! Help!

thanks and regards

Are you sure you're connected? With 5 blue bars bottom of screen?

Try step 2 (Deleting LW prefs folder) here Fixes for Limewire when LW isn't operating as it should though this will mean you will lose the word filters & some other settings if you used the setup provided by the forum. Also if you used the Security blocklist, you will need to re-install that.

Hello LotR

You helped me with exactly the same problem a few years ago when I had XP but this one is more complicated. I'm using Windows 7 now.

"Are you sure you're connected? With 5 blue bars bottom of screen?"

No I see no bars.

"Try step 2 (Deleting LW prefs folder) here Fixes for Limewire when LW isn't operating as it should .."

Done. I deleted the Limeware folder from AppData, right clicked on the LW icon and 'run as administrator' after setting the compatibility setting to 'windows 7'

I had earlier installed Java 1.6 so I re-installed it clicking on your 'offline' link, but I still don't see how the hell you can specify 'run as administrator' - right click does nothing.

So all in all I've got nowhere. This is my 3rd installation of LimeWire over the years and this is the only time I've achieved sweet FA with it.

Your assistance is much appreciated.

brgds

Did you get my previous response to this message? I can't find it anywhere. I only sent it 10 minutes ago.

No I do not have any blue bars - they're greyed out - and it just says 'connecting' but never does.

For Windows 7, it seems to be very important to set Java to Run as Admin or else your LW will most likely struggle to get a connection.
And your problem appears to be no connection which is why you cannot get any search results.

When you downloaded the offline java installer, it will most likely have been saved into C:\Users\Username\Downloads. So the idea would have been to go to that folder to find the Java installer & set it to run as admin. Alternatively, you can search Java.exe in Start menu & under programs it will show up (right-click & choose Properties, Compatibility tab, check option for Run as Admin. at bottom of that window.)

Are you using LimeStart? This starter program will protect your connection file if LW has not been used in previous 30 days.
You might need to use a connection fix installer to install a fresh connection file: LPE Connection Fix installer

I suspect the Java not set to Run as Admin for Win 7 was the cause of the problem after you had re-installed LW.

My first concern is to run Java as Admin and I admit I am totally perplexed as to how you achieve that. I have saved the Offline installation file to C:/users/downloads. I have right clicked on the saved download file and/or also I have then dragged it to my desktop and right clicked on the icon. In both cases there is no 'run as administrator' option on the drop down menu.

I appreciate your helping me on this issue and I am sure you have helped dozens of people to get started over the years, but it gets to the point where it seems impossible to make progress and becomes so frustrating that you wonder whether to bother any more. I have successfully downloaded LimeWire and it starts and gives me all the functionality except the most important one - connectivity. It really should be easier than this. There is a Youtube video showing some processes to follow. I haven't yet tried that because you seem pretty certain that my Java problem is the big hurdle. Please help me get over it.

many thanks

Taffstuart

Are you logged in as an administrator of your computer?
If yes, right-clicking the Java installer should show an option to Run as Administrator. Sounds to me like you are not logged in with Admin permissions. ie:

but instead do this with the Java installer.
