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

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)
