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.

Wrong language setting perhaps. Go to where the Tools menu would normally be, & Options, if you recall the position of them. Miscellaneous tab is where the language can be changed. English is listed as first option in drop down menu.

I believe LW installer normally brings up the language settings the Java has been using. Might I suggest you try re-installing LW. No uninstallation necessary. Use this installer: http://www9.limewire.com/download/LimeWireWin-full.exe and don't flip through the options of installer too quickly. It should have a question about which language to be installed.

If that does not work, try this technique: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/333278-post2.html which means also deleting the LW preferences. There might be an issue with your Java that is affecting LW. (not uncommon for Java to give LW problems!)

hello. i have windows vista home basic operating system & i went to the official limewire site to download the application. the download went through however the installation will not. everytime i attempt to install it a safe mode screen comes up and states that there is "not enough memory to fit it". i've never had this happen before - been using limewire for several years on different pc models & this pc is fairly new so i can't imagine why it wouldn't have the capacity to hold limewire.

The Hard (C) drive holds 65GB with 45GB of free space left; there's also a recovery drive which holds 10GB with 6GB of free space left. Currently the RAM is 502 MB

now all of this is mumbo jumbo to me - i just want to know how i can resolve this issue. please help me!

Thanks,
Jscota

Hi,

I am really disappointed. Limewire forced me to download the new version. I tried on my Windows Vista computer and it repeatedly said installation failed. So, I came here, followed advice. Got rid of Java, re downloaded, re downloaded Limewire, used clean up software, got rid of all Limewire folders etc etc. I have tried everything advised including the back up installer and I continue to get the same error message. We then tried on the Mac, thinking that it was a problem with my PC. Same problem though it says 'unable to mount'. So, all I can guess is one of two things. There is a serious problem with Limewire software that they are not addressing (given the number of posts in this thread) or, they are intentionally making the basic Limewire impossible to download to force us to upgrade to Pro, which I am tempted to do but given the reports here, I would probably have the same problem.

So, I suppose I am just asking if anyone knows how to get round this and can help me in simple speak as I am not a geek but work well under instruction. Thanks so much in advance.

What are your system details?
Have you tried installing LW to a different location?
