So it *was* working fine, for a while...

A browser timeout?

Were there connections on the "Connections to Strangers" page? (Under 
"Status"). There should be 20 connected or busy/backed off peers on a healthy 
node (click advanced mode to show the summary).

Ok, so the startup script times out while Freenet is starting up, but then 
Freenet works anyway.

But at some later point, the startup script still times out, but Freenet 
doesn't show up in the browser, and the wrapper.log shows something about wrong 
wrapper versions? I am fairly sure that the Windows installer uses the 3.3.5 
version of the library - what OS are you trying to install on?

And now you have got rid of it so you can't send us your wrapper.log? That 
might have been helpful; the warning about the wrapper versions is not normally 
fatal, there is likely to be something else going on, we might have fixed it if 
we had the wrapper.log.

Sorry, there is some sort of a problem with the uninstall survey at the moment, 
we are not sure whether it is working or not (last I looked there were 2 
uninstalls in the last month, which seems highly unlikely).

What OS are you trying to install Freenet on? When did you install it? How much 
memory does the computer have?
