View Full Version : WinMX Patch

I loved one of the older versions of WinMX. NOW you need some kind of "patch" to get it to work. WHERE do i get this patch?
By the way, I am a teacher so I use the free DLs in my lessons. I am not one of these so -called pirates tha Don Henley is so concerned about, okay? (The man spent a little too much of his money trying to protect those woods!)
Thank you!

I honestly have no idea how to find this information myself. I have tried searching but i must not use the correct keywords. I was hoping that someone could direct me to an "even-an-idiot-can-do-it" site. I can read and follow directions--no problem! I am glad someone actually understood my question, at any rate!

I've found that the 'patch' no longer works with older versions of WinMX, Version WinMX 3.54 Beta 4 works fine. I had the patch, but deleted it long ago being that it is now worthless. The patch was basically some Hosts file entries created by a former WinMX developer soon after the RIAA had WinMX shut down.

WinMX 3.53/3.54 needs a Hosts file patch again to connect. Download at...


...Place Hosts file in Windows/System32/drivers/etc folder for Win2K/XP or Windows folder for Windows 98SE/ME.
