Why won't bearshare work on my new computer it has windows vista??

Hi There..

You might want to make sure that you have the latest version of Java installed on your machine. Bearshare is very picky like that. The Latest version is V6.1

You can find it here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp



The newer version of Bearshare does not offer much either, I got my new laptop with Vista and the older version is not compatible with it and the new Bearshare would not let you do all that you could do with older version. I m talking about movie downloads here. Thenew one just allows music/MP3/Videos but not full movies. It does not offer application or image downloads either.

I have had my desktop on XP and got the older bearshare 5.2.5 downloaded after searching from google as the bearsharewebsite does not offer the older versions at all either. The only thing you can do is install teh newer version Bearshare 6.0 with limited options.

I recommend 5.2.5 through google mate.
