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.

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.

Default Unsuitable Java Environment

I recently uninstalled my current java & installed the newer 1.5.0 beta java, and since then LW 1.9.2 beta gives me an error at startup that it can't find a suitable runtime environment. I looked at aother posts and saw that apparently LW 1.9.2 can run in 1.5.0, but mine won't. What can I do?

Peerless gave you good direction. If that didn't work and you are using Windows go to Control Panel, right click on the Java icon, uncheck IE and Netscape, reboot your computer and try again.

Good luck,

Default Thanks guys, but...

Un/Re-installing and unchecking the IE box didn't work, so I uninstalled both LW & java 1.5.0, re-installed java 1.5.0 & then LW. The LW installer didn't ask me to download the j2re, so I thought that was going to work, but no. Same unsuitable runtime environment error. So I uninstalled both again, and installed LW w/o java in yet, and let the LW installer go get java 1.3.1_04, and now LW runs again. However, I lost all the search icons but the All Files one. I'll see soon enough if they come back after a restart.
I'm on an old 700 MHz PIII w/ 256 RAM, and XP seems to really work it. There are 2 users on the PC, and on my side I like to keep LW, Zone Alarm, Peerguardian, and NAV Auto-Protect running. Sometimes another user goes onto their side, and I noticed that even when I'm not logged on, there are mouse pointer/ menu flickering when Yahoo games runs its java applet. I've tried all the obvious fixes, and even had it licked once, using a special driver from Dell so XP can run Dell's modified version of the video card. But since I've reinstalled XP, and apparently Dell doesn't want to help again. (It took me 3 mos. to get the driver the first time)
The flickering problem doesn't happen with LW, but even when the modem's turned off, and there's no I/O traffic, it slows the computer noticeably. I was hoping the newest java would be more efficient in it's use of my poor, overworked CPU.
I'd still like to be able to run LW in the newest java to see what would happen, so if anyone has anymore ideas as to what I could try, I'm grateful to hear them even if I've got LW up now.
Thanks, everyone.

Default Need feedback before I try an idea...

I know some uninstallers don't completely remove everything that an app's been accumulating during the time it's been running on a machine. Does anyone know specifically where there could be some kind of Application Data/Common/Config data stored with LW & Java? I noticed that after re-installing LW, my settings are still intact, so there's gotta be something lingering somewhere, and I'm hoping starting out completely fresh with both'll allow me to try the 1.5.0 java.

Limewire will use the default JRE configured in your Java control panel.

Be sure, once you have installed your new version of Java 1.5 Beta 1 that this is effectively the selected JRE. You may have several JREs on your host, and the default selected one is not working properly. So select the new one, and drop the previous JRE from its directory.

If this still does not work, make uninstall all the JREs you can find in your Control Panel-Add/Remove programs, then look onto your PC to remove the Program Files\Java\ folder you may have.

Note that there may be a JRE folder within your Limewire installation directory, if you used the international installer.

Then CTRL+ALT+DEL to display the list of running app: kill the jupdate.exe process (this is the Java autoupdate tool in your system tray).

Then go to the registry and delete the following keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment

(this drops your Java user settings).

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment

(this kills all your configured JREs: this key contains one subkey for each installed JRE, each subkey containing the location of its installation folder)


(this kills the integration of Java into your browser)


(this kills the autoupdate settings and cached data)


(this kills the Java Web Start installation)

Then reinstall Java. It will restore the previous keys to their default, and you'll be sure to use the appropriate version which will be the only one "supported" on your system.

Normally you don't need to reinstall Limewire because its launcher will detect and use the default JRE you have just reconfigured in a clean state.

You may want to have two versions of the JRE on your system: don't mix them into the same installation folder. Normally the Java installer proposes you a installation folder name that includes its version number. Keep that version number in the installation directory.

Never overwrite an existing JRE installation folder with another version. You may switch from one to the other using the Java Control Panel. If the last version just fits your needs, you can safely uninstall the previous version.

Default Thanks

I wish I'd heard from you with that solution a few weeks sooner. I've just finished re-installing XP, and now 1.5.0 works w/ LW.
Problem is, now I've got a connection problem to figure out. Here's the post where I've been addressing it: Confused as to how to tell LW my IP, etc

Default Worked before- Not anymore!

Well, I had to reinstall xp (again), and this time, I get teh "Unsuitable Java Enironment" error. I looked in the registry, and didn't see exactly the folders verdyp said I would. After \JavaSoft, the names weren't the same as what was posted here. So I had already uninstalled Java 1.5.0, and decided to delete everything past \JavaSoft & do a clean install. Now I have "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\ Java2D\1.5.0\Drivers\.DISPLAY1 ATI Technologies Inc. RAGE 128 PRO AGP 4X TMDS\32 " Bold is what has been replaced since the install.
When I installed Java, and LW, for that matter, I install to a different partition. Programs are on my E drive, and the C drive partition only has Windows stuff on it. So all I do when I install something, is change the first character on the install path to e, and let the rest of the path remain default.
I don't understand why this happens. The last time I re-installed xp, I put the J2re 1.5.0 in before I installed LW, and everything was fine. The only difference was that I'd installed the LW 394 beta, rather than the 404 first.
Come to think about it now, I may have installed JRE 1.4.2 just after installing 1.5.0- but I think for some reason I thought LW was running on 1.5.0 rather than on 1.4.2. I remember being happy that I got LW to run on 1.5.0, but I don't remember what led me to believe it was. Now I wonder if LW had actually latched onto 1.4.2 afterall....
All this is making my brain a pretzel. Please someone help me make sense of this.
