Does Limewire ever respond to problems in this forum?
I wrote about a problem with installation about 2 weeks ago, and still, no response. Is there a direct e-mail to the company? Do they read the posts? Do the moderators respond?

I'm very frustrated!

-pro support is offered at (these forums are a community of all sorts of people--sure not like a customer service department, eh?

-sometimes one of the paid developers post here just like the rest of us . . . often on their off hours. We sure pay attention when they do, even if they don't always get the appreciation they deserve.

-the moderators respond when threads need, well, moderation.

Looks like your post was seen by quite a few people, but looks like no one had an answer for you. I'm just a mac user, and have never used LW on Windows. Just happened by and noticed your post.

As you probably saw from reading the other threads, the usual advice is to uninstall the old and download the new, and post with the operating system, connection kind, and versions to give others a sense of where the problem is.

I hope a Windows user can help. Post back with more details and somebody should have some idea of what you could do.

I've tried deleting...etc. I'm frustrated because I'm not a novice, yet can't figure it out.

I have noticed a lot of posters have the same issues...that's why I was wondering if LimeWire was paying any attention here.

I've also tried renaming the trying that route again right now.

where do you find info on "error 1714 Windows 98"? Google showed some installers for other programs return that error when their older installer wasn't uninstalled and talked about needing a Windows 98 patch of some kind. Make any sense to you?

. . . just idle curiousity.

(nice sig--which Laurie Russo?)

Laurie Russo is my name...the quote is by someone unknown...I'm a teacher.

Good luck with the install problems and the upcoming year . Hope someone can help. (Installing on computers at least is logical--kids are more rewarding but can be as frustrating! speaking as a teacher).

Before you patch your system, did you try deleting your old LimeWire installation?

If so, which installer did you use? The smaller English installer or the international installer? I find the international installer has a far greater error tolerancy, so your best chance is probably to try first deleting your old LimeWire installation manually (usually located at c:/program files/limewire) and if Windows is still causing trouble when you try to install the English installer, take the bigger international installer.

Your Installation Problem
Hi Laurie,

Have you tried installing the international version of LimeWire? This version uses a different type of installer and often works on systems where the English only cannot initially be installed.
