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.

Try changing this to simply read:

javaw -cp . RunLime

You also might want to make sure that you see the Java2TM Runtime Environment, v1.3.1 listed in your programs under the Start>>Settings>>Control Panel Add/Remove Programs window. If this is not there, you should probably try installing LimeWire again.

Default All of Hard Drive being shared?

In the bottom right of the LimeWire Window, it shows the files as more than I have to share. I had this happen before and it was fixed by rebooting, but not now.

That is very strange. What is your LimeWire shared directory? If you change your shared directory in the Tools>>Options window, does it change the number of shared files listed?

Keep in mind that all subdirectories of your shared directory are also shared.

Default Sharing all of hard drive?

The path to Save and File Sharing in options is
C:\Program Files\LimeWire\Shared
The library shows 11 files shared but there are actually 17 files in the shared folder. The number of shared files that is shown at the bottom right in the LimeWire window is 4771 in both Windows 95B and Windows 2000.
I used to keep LimeWire on all the time except when I left the house but have turned it off until I can get this figured out. I do not think I have a virus at least one that is affecting my hard drive, because the free space is still the same.

This is very unusual. The library is only showing 11 files because it only shares file that have shared extensions, so you probably have 6 files in that directory of extensions that are not shared.

In terms of it sharing your entire hard drive, does it continue to do this if you change the shared directory?

Thumbs up Sharing hard drive?

Here is what I did: I renamed the shared file to nonshared and made a new folder called shared into which I put Acrobat 4.0. I closed the LimeWire and when I opened it up again it showed 16 files as shared at the bottom right window. The library shows only the acrobat file in the left side of the window and no files in the right side window. This is better and I can live with it. Also all the files in the original shared file came from LimeWire so they cannot be incorrect file types.Thanks for the help.I really like LimeWire bugs, warts and all!

Glad to hear that you generally like using LimeWire.

I'm still really confused by all of this, though. When you install LimeWire, the default shared directory (C:\Program Files\LimeWire\Shared) is empty. We create the folder from scratch unless there is already a folder there, and we put nothing in it. What are the files in your new "Unshared" directory?

As far as the file types, there are not really "correct" and "incorrect" file types -- there are simply file types that are shared by default, and file types that are not shared by default.

The change you made with the Acrobat file was a good idea, the only strange thing is that it should show only 1 shared file (I assume this is an exe file?). Is there something I'm missing here? It is possible that there is a bug that we are unaware of, but that code has been very thoroughly tested.

Smile Shared hard drive??

I just renamed the original shared folder (did not move it) to nonshared, kept all the original 18 files in it. Path: C:\Program Files\LimeWire\Nonshared.
Then I made up a new folder, named it Shared and put 1 file (Acrobat 4.0) in it. Path: C:\Program Files\LimeWire\Shared
I hope this makes it clearer.

Unhappy Can't connect with Mac version

I am a new user and downloaded the Mac version this morning. The software appears to be running fine but the connection never comes through (waited up to 30 min.). So I have not been able to put it to the test yet. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.
