LimeWire for OS X

in Mac Software edited January 2014

Ok heres my problem and i want to know how to fix it and if anyone else has had this problem. I have OS X, latest version too not sure which 10.2.x but whenever i try to download limewire for OS X it works fine and i install it, but it will not open. Not even an error message, it simply will not open. I have been using limewire in classic mode to get it to run but i would much rather have it in OS X. Any ideas would be appreciated,

    Why on earth would you use LimeWire when there are so many better alternatives?

    Aquasition and mldonkey work like a charm for me.

    (Aquasition is the LimeWire core w/ Aqua gui).

    I had this happen to me once with limewire. I had to completely remove it and reinstall instead of doing the usuall install on top of the older version.

    Give Direct Connect a try. It always works and if something goes wrong it tells you what it is. For example if the person you wanna try and download from doesn't have any upload slots open then it will say NO FREE SLOTS. It's soOoOoOo much better than any app that's on the Gneutella network. Each user can chose to run their own server/hub if they want to. It's cool. If you need more help getting it set up e-mail me or send me an IM on either MSN Messanger or AOL Instant Messanger.
