What works

The installer starts, my guess is it would install normally, but... (see "What does not work")

What does not

Doesn't connect to the internet. When it had to connect to the LimeWire server, Wine simply terminated.


What was not tested

Seeing it terminated before i was able to succesfully install the program, (almost) nothing was tested.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

It might be my computer that is causing the problem, and not Wine, because the Linux Client doesnt connect to the ineternet either.

HowTo / Notes


To use the online installer you'll have to use native shlwapi, otherwise Limewire will be unable to download the installer files:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="shlwapi=n" wine  LimeWireWin.exe

after  copying shlwapi.dll from a windows partition to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

(at one point (during java install) the installer seems to hang, but just wait a while and the installation will succeed)
