Kazaa Lite...


This is a Windows problem.. and I know this is a Linux website... but I'm running WinXP asside from Redhat... and I'm having problems starting Kazaa Lite 2.1.0 in Win XP... I have uninstall/reinstalled it several times... and every time I try to start it it... I double click it, and I don't get an error message, or anything, I get an hour glass, and nothing happens, it doesn't start at all... all of my other programs are running fine in XP... anyone have any ideas?

ha ha ha ha... Sorry, but ha ha ha... Can you open up a terminal and start the application (the cmd is what I mean by terminal)? This might give you some error messages to look at.

Also, is it possibly starting, but it's just minimized to your system tray (don't forget in XP you now have that "hide the tray from me please" feature, so don't forget to reveal all)?

Have you tried any other P2P apps, possibly this was a bad download?

Welcome to LQ, and I'm sorry I have to laugh...

Cool

I already checked the "hide in system tray" feature... wasn't there... I also did a CTRL - ALT - DELETE... and to no avail... Kazaa Lite wasn't running at all... it was working fine the other day, wouldn't start... so I restarted... still wouldn't start up... so I uninstalled it, reinstalled it... did this several times, from different download locations... still won't start... as far as the command prompt thing goes... I isn't the command to change directories "cd Program Files" for instance...? and I know its "cd.." to move up a dir... ???! thanx...

Wine... that would be a Windows imulator? Correct? It makes Windows programs compatible with versions of Linux, correct? Kinda new to Linux... if so... does anyone know if you can use it to run "Half-Life" or "Counter-Strike" so I could do away with Windows all-together!?

Yes, MANY people use wineX which is a variation of wine (costs like 5 bux a month) that works great with games to run HL and CS servers/games.

www.winehq.org AND/OR
www.transgaming.com (wineX)

Never rule out:
www.linuxgames.com ( I think )

Cool

cd "C:\Program Files"
OR
cd C:\Pro{TAB}
Where {TAB} is pressing the TAB key and hoping auto complete works

Cool
