Most problems are not new. The Search function is most useful. Also the red Stickies have answers to the most commonly asked questions. (over 90 percent).
If your problem is not resolved by a search of the forums, please take the next step and post in the appropriate forum. There are many members who will be glad to help.
If you are new to the world of file sharing please do not be shy! Everyone was ‘new’ when they first started.

When posting, please include details for:
Your Operating System ....... Your version of your Gnutella Client (* this is important for helping solve problems) ....... Your Internet connection (56K, Cable, DSL) ....... The exact error message, if one pops up
Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you.

Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Hello. Well I have good news and bad news. The good news is that with this fix that Skyliner showed me, I don't get the "splittet files" message anymore, and limewire finally installs.

The bad news and the problem now is that when I try to run Limewire I get the message shown in the picture below.

So, I finally installed it, but I still can't even run LW. Any other suggestions?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

you're probably better off uninstalling version 5 and installing 4.18.8 from here -- when you uninstall go to start --> all programs -->limewire -> uninstall (windows XP SP3)

Question I need some help too! :)

This is actually for my Grandfather. He/we bought and purchased Limewire PRO after his one year subscription was up. It worked well for about 2 months... new operating system look and everything. Now we can't open it. It gives us the same error message repeatedly. "Limewire couldn't open" then it goes on to tell us that there must have been a problem with installation. I've uninstalled and reinstalled until I'm blue in the face. All I want to do is call someone to walk me through the reinstall... or tell me what the issue is, but I can't find a number to call. Any suggestions? Should I jsut give up? That would be $40 down the toilet for my grandfather... and I would HATE that.

Please advise.

Thank you.

New operating system? Vista or ... ? Here's things to try.

1. http://www.gnutellaforums.com/333278-post2.html but use your offline installer if you have one. Pro is always an offline installer. Also, before installing: delete the LW preferences folder; http://www.gnutellaforums.com/window...tml#post183932.

2. If using Vista, set the installer to run as Administrator. After installing, set the LW program to run as administrator. Do each by right-clicking the file & choose Run as Admin.

Try the process suggested in step 1 above. And as suggested, if you use Vista you need to set both the installer & LW to run as Admin.

Another thing to try is, change the compatibility mode of LW, set to run as Windows 2000/NT, or if using Vista set to run as XP. To change compatibility mode, see point #5 or 6 here Fixes for Limewire (click on blue link).

BTW if anyone is interested in downgrading to LW 4, please see Why is LW 4.16 superior to LW 4.18 or LW 5?.

LW 5 will not be friendly to everyone's system, but that's been the nature of LW, one version doing ok, the next not on a particular person's system.

Alright... I'm ****ing pissed and sorry for my cussing but.. like my name says, WHAT THE **** LIMEWIRE? I had the previous limewire and saw the new update, so I went ahead and updated it so I could get the newest limewire. Then when I try starting it up after downloading it says Limewire Couldn't Start :-( And then goes on with it's bullshit about reinstalling. I reinstalled. Still nothing happened. So I use this back up link and it still ****s up. My limewire was fine and then this new shitty update now made it so I can't even use limewire! This is rediculous. Help me please! And sorry for my cussing again as I said.. im just so ****ing pissed!

Alright nevermind. I just downgraded.
Alright for every1 here's a tip!
Go to my computer.
Then Program files
Then double click on limewire.
Go to .NetworkShare
Then boom! all of the installations for the previous installers. Works completely fine, and just use the previous limewire which is 4.16.6
And then the error thing doesn't pop up!
Completely normal. Hope this helps guys!
