I tried the latest version of this dictionary/thesaurus portable software and still had problems with it. Only this time, I recorded my problem.

@Mixture: This is really something you need to post about in forums.

Hi to all of you who use WordWeb-
I've read the license 3 times now & I still don't get it. If you get it, please explain it to me & after you do, I'll probably be saying DUH to myself.
Link to the license if anyone wants to read it....

I've read all of the above comments & I still don't get a clue.

I'm in hopes that one of you can explain it to me.

Thanks in advance.

The license clearly says that if you fly aboard a commercial jet aircraft more than TWICE in a 12 month time period, you are not being 'green'. This company believes in environmentalism, and hates normal people like you and I who drive cars, flies aboard aircraft, and use gas-powered lawn mowers. That's why I don't use this weird software and use The Sage instead.

Happy.Camper2 on 2018-05-16 14:40

Hi Mixture-
[1]I've never flown on a jet or any other in the sky vehicles
[2]I don't have a car since a few years ago
[3]I don't have any gas-powered gizmos

Maybe I'm just 'green' enough to use WordWeb if need be.
I also keep The Sage on hand if I need it.

Thank you for explaining that strange license to me and the way
its written up does seem kinda weird to me.

Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Internet connection
Stealth: ? No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract

  3. Launch LongmanEnglishDictionaryBrowser,1.exe (32-bit) or LongmanEnglishDictionaryBrowser,2.exe (64-bit), depending on whether you are running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows
What's new? Improved:
  • The handling of not-found words.
Fixed issues:
  • That the program did not launch any longer.
  • That Google TTS was blocked.
  • Of GUI layout due to custom DPI configurations.
  • That any word has been no longer searchable.

I strongly suppose that, every time you enter a search, this program will connect not only to the Longman database but will also establish connections either to Google or Amazon (the two biggest tracking firms this poor, abused globe has ever seen). The website with the pure online version doesn't even load if I block Amazon. If someone else tests it and finds out that it doesn't connect either to Google or Amazon, I will download it. :-)

I obtained Lingoes dictionaries by looking up an older version, such as "Lingoes Translator 2.8.1 + Dictionaries". I used & . I used 7-zip to unzip the files (unzip "part1" and you will unzip the whole file). The dictionaries are found in the folder "dictionaries". A list is found at!! , although the links did not seem to work. Also, if you try to download the ".ld2" files from the Lingoes website, I did get a download window sometimes from "Download from Dbank" if I left clicked all over the first screen that came up about 100 times. Every now and then you will get a series of downloads from "Download from SkyDrive", but only on certain dictionary downloads.

The latest version of Lingoes is 2.9.2-
However I would like to ask- is there a way to block the annoying ads? I would rather stop using Lingoes than tolerating the obtrusive ads Lingoes spews out at every search.
