To add to your query,

The system file used is local to the WinMX directory your system wont even know its there except when WinMX uses it so there is not harm there.

As far as I'm aware the Add/Remove entry removes the entire WinMX directory (which is where the patch is located as well) and undoes any registry changes it made in the first place.

Bearded Blunder made this installer and added this feature I'm sure if im mistaken about this he can clarify it.  The long and short of the matter is there is no harm in adding this patch to your system.

to download winmx try http://patch.winmxconex.com

& to clarify MH's post above, on using the uninstall option from add/remove in control panel, you're first asked for confirmation, & then asked if you wish to remove the winmx folder regardless if it's empty afterward or not (this is the default behaviour), in either case uninstall first removes all the files associated with winmx along with it's shortcut, removes the add/remove entry from the registry & restores the oledlg.dll locking entry to the state it whas when you ran the installer (this primarily affects win 9x users)

in either case it then attempts to remove the winmx program folder, if you accepted the default selection it does so with a flag to remove regardless if it's empty or not, but you have the choice to have it try without this flag, in which case the removal will fail leaving the folder if you've added your own files, or have something like bendmx installed thereby preserving the settings for those add-ins should you later reinstall winmx..

i hope this clarifys it for everyone

LD1965,

If you can describe whats happening in more detail we can help get you fixed up im sure, atm Im not entirely sure what you mean by 'working again'  give us more details like your set up rotuers, firewalls etc and where did you get your winmx and patch, and also whats exactly happening.

Hi Me Here,
Sorry, I should have been more specific in my post. I have a Motorola SBG900 wireless cable modem. When I open WinMX it keeps trying to make a network connection but won't. When I try to check the settings it says "Unable to make outgoing TCP connection to test servers". I've tried manually configuring the TCP and UDP ports on my router, changing the WinMX settings to use Socks...I do not know what else to try.
Thanks

Hey Me Here,
I tried messing with my router settings again and I finally got it to work!
Thank you so much for your help. I've been with WinMX for years and am so happy to be able to still be here!

OK, so I thought I had it. Closed everything out, re-started and no more connection. Router gateway and firewall settings are  set at TCP Port 6699, UDP 6257. Same settings in WinMX app. I just do not know what else to try.
Thanks,
LD

Ok LD1965,

Lets just make sure all is well from the top if you dont mind and hopefullly something in this array will get you sorted.

First thing I want you to do is open WinMX > Settings > Outgoing TCP > Set this or make sure its set to "Don't use a proxy server (connect direcly!)"
and always leave this settings as above.

Now go to Start > Run > type cmd and OK.
A new black box will appear, in it type ipconfig
Then hit Enter
You will now see some information, of this you want the one that says 'IP Address' Make a note of it.
**Note: not to be confused with the 'Default Gateway Address'.
Close the box.

Go back to your router confiurations interface, and the Port Forwarding section be sure that the rules you made prior are pointing to this same IP Address you made note of, if not change them now to the correct one.
Also while your here be sure you made two separate rules for WinMX.  One specifically for TCP/6699 and another for UDP/6257 to the above IP.
Apply if any changes.

Now Im not certain what firewall you have but since you mention the port Im going to assume that its either XP/Vista one or one similar in how it acts.

I want you to remove WinMX completely from the allowed/exceptions list. So that its not listed at all remove completely.  Then restart your WinMX at this time, The firewall should now ask you to 'allow this?' again and you can say yes, you may also need to go back in once this is done and re-Add your port settings, remember to add both if you have to add any.

Let me know if this helps get you connected again.

Hey Me Here,
I tried everything you suggested and still no go. I got this PC from work and wonder if the McAfee Group policies are what is jacking it up? It has not been on a network in years and I do not know why WinMX would work and then not work like it did. I've deleted and re-added both the gateway and firewall rules on my router and still get nothing. So frustrating! I appreciate your time and patience with me.
Thanks,
LD

OK, usually if you are getting the flashing yellow on networks with WinMX, and in reading I think thats what we are dealing with here correct?  The actual connection to the network itself?

This is almost exculsively at issue with firewalls or antivirus causing this.  Is this McAfee what you use for your antivirus on this PC now? maybe its time to uninstall that and get something we know is more WinMX friendly like AVast or maybe AVG
Both of which are free and work with WinMx Nicely.

Those are antivirus not a firewall so its best to enable the XP firewall in this case, and use one of the antivirus mentioned above, keep in mind often antivirus like McAfee simply turned off can still cause problems so although its usually our policy not to ask folks to uninstall things, because this was a work set up Im thinking its best.

The other possibility with this is ISP blocking your access, at this time your on RoadRunner I believe and we have NO knownledge of them doing anything of the sort, so again I have to suspect something on the Machine, Maybe its time to have a serious look at any protective measures on the Machine.  As your rightly thinking Work machines often have more serious security measures in place for both keeping traffic IN and keeping it OUT.

So uninstall McAfee, and have a look to make sure other security programs are not installed as well that could cause this.
(if your unsure how winmx friendly they are post here we'll let you know)
Confirm for me:
WinMX > Settings > Outgoing TCP > Set to "Don't use a proxy server (connect direcly!)"
**Not to be confused with Incoming TCP**

Hi ME here,
Yes it is set to Don't use a proxy server. I'm afraid to uninstall McAfee and it will not let me turn Windows Firewall back on. I checked the McAfee logs and saw an entry for WinMX but it did not say that it blocked it.  
I just re-set the firewall port range in my router for WinMX to 6257-10000 and it worked! I had to configure the Port Forwarding TCP/UDPs separately and thought I had to do the same for the Firewall settings but it would not work that way. Re-setting it to TCP/UDP with the port range did it!
Thank you so much for all of your help! Hopefully the headache I just went thru will help someone else out!

Hi becca. do you mean your cat5 cable goes to a little powered box with an antenna and then connects wireless to a router or that your plugged into the router?

Eitherway the ports for winmx need to be forwarded in the router.
First i suggest you set up a static up. a guide for this can be found here: http://winmxworld.com/tutorials/static_ip.html

Then for help configuring your router you can go here: http://portforward.com/
Once there select your router make and model from the list on the front page. then from the second list select winmx and it will give you step by step instructions on configuring your router. It even has pictures!

Post back for additional help or join the room on winmx @ WinMxWorld.Com Help_BABA1354BABE
Remember you do not need to be connected to join a room (yellow light not the red light)
Just put the address in the filterbar and click join.

ok, nevermind... i read through some stuff i had not seen on the help pages before... i have changed my bandwidth settings and have seen and increase in d/l and a decrease in u/l and that was what i was after...

wonder why someone would tell me to use settings that don't work, and in fact make things worse? oh well...

one should always go with the suggests on the help pages...
