No point in paying for something that doesn't work as good as free software.
That software, in particular, is particularly galling in that it demands you keep up
the payments or the music you already downloaded will stop playing.

Now that you are using the real BearShare start exploring and you will
probably find a lot of music the record companies don't want you to hear
because they don't "own" it. That's one of their biggest fears, that you might
end up buying CDs from real artists instead of their inferior mass market product.

Hi, is there a bearstart utility around that will work with vista? - thanks!

AaronWalkhouse April 30th, 2007 11:09 PM

If you set it to run in XP compatibility mode and do that for BearShare too, it should work.

If at all possible, you should dump Vista and go with XP for at least two more years. ;]

Cheers thanks for that. Would prefer XP, I dont like Vista at all (on my sisters laptop tho so I dont have to put up with it)

unfortunately still no go, its like the utility wont change the date but it will open bearshare

Oh yes, you have to set them to run in admin mode. I don't know how to do
that, since I won't touch Vista with a mouse on a ten foot cord. ;]

Hi ,
Hope i'm in the right thread!! I had been using an old version of Bearflix and one day stupidly thought i'd buy bearflix pro(dont ask why).
Ok ..installed the new version of Bearflix i after removing old version and everything was going fine till i searched for movies eg Axxo .. 5 results when i usually got a hundred more.. If it aint broke dont fix it came to mind... Anyway tried evrything removing it and re-installing including registry entries etc.. then install latest bearshre joy.
Have just installed the bearshare test beta as per this thread and now find all my video files again!!!!
What is teh problem and how can i go back to bearflix and use the pro liscence?? ?
Think i wasted my money here!!

Don't bother with BearFlix. It is just a copy of BearShare that was
crippled to prevent you from downloading anything but pictures and
short videos. You won't get a refund either because you "signed"
away your rights to one in the EULA.

The beta is better than Pro ever was because it's download limits were
jacked way up to help debug performance problems and it's the only
version that allows you to force it into ultrapeer mode.

Cheers mate.
