Hello, the first may be silly but I have to ask. have you rebooted?
Have removed the older java(s) from Control Panel>Add/Remove programs.
Have you checked that the firewall is not blocking LW.

Yup I have rebooted. I downloaded the updated at java.com but is that all I need to do to get java ? I deleted all of the older versions but maybe I deleted something I wasn't supposed to ? I'm not sure to check the firewall but I know on the other accounts on this computer limewire always worked, just not this account that I use.

Download it from here,choose the correct Operating system, eg XP is the first one.
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Which account? The BC not likely

Uninstall the old Java and limewire,install the new Java then limewire.

I have been downloading from there ... but I tried it again. I did as you said ... deleted and then downloadeed and reinstalled ... and I'm still getting the same stupid error message. Limewire failed to install java ... go to this site and download it ...

The account I am talking about is my login on the computer. We have the main account where this was all working and when I created my own account everything went stupid.

Sorry the last idea I have is for you to search and/or post some questions at the Limewire forum.
Gnutella Forums

I and many would be grateful if you would post back a solution should it be found.

Good Luck

Best way that i found is to just turn off your firewall and it will install that way then turn your firewall back on when done.

The account I am talking about is my login on the computer. We have the main account where this was all working and when I created my own account everything went stupid.

Just so there is no confusion. Did you download Java using your account or the main administrator account? What permissions does 'your' account have? This is where the difficulty seems to lie. In that you may have two different different levels of permissions with 'your' account as compared to the administrator account. If you can clarify the differences in account permission levels and what actions you performed in each type of account we may be able to sort this all out.

My account is computer administrator and so is the first account we made ... do you need more information than this ? And thank you for trying to help ... my iTunes has also decided not to work and I can't install that again either ... think my whole computer is shutting down on me. :thumbsup:

Oh and I downloaded Java using my account ...
