LimeWire Pirate Edition …. Still works.

Posted by Anonymous on September 6, 2012

Resurrected version of the P2P application let’s you search and share files through the Gnutella network.LimeWire allows you to search for multiple files at the same time, available in several different languages, and is most famous for its easeofuse and crossplatform compatibility.

via LimeWire Pirate Edition 5.6.2 – TechSpot Downloads.

This is interesting. I own the Star Trek Enterprise TV series, purchased from the Apple Store, but now I want to watch them on my PC, so I thought I’d see if Limewire works to get the episodes. (~300 MB each episode, so p2p is fast) I hate iTunes and I don’t want it on my laptop.

If you thought Limewire was dead, it is, but someone released a Pirate version that still works.

You may need to remove Java 7 and install Java 6 update 35 and then find run this hard to find file: (LPE ConnectFix 303KB  – Windows users, use 7-Zip to unzip .exe then run it.) It did the trick. Microsoft Security Essentials found no security threats with it, but be sure to check with your own AntiVirus software before you run it.

With the Pirate version you can skip the advertisements and spyware in the paid official Limewire.

Update: It sort of works, probably not enough people using it because the download stalled. I was able to download the theme song and it played, however. I still think P2P is great technology with plenty of legal uses.
