Second Life 3.6.12 (284506) Dec 4 2013 04:55:18 - Keeps downloading and reinstalling


Recommended Posts

Never had any issues before, and I thought it was only if I went to the Beta grid and back to the main grid but I am having to install the application every time I log back on if I am on for more than a few minutes.

Could not find any other topics on this if there is sorry for the repetition.


This is my info..

The name of the viewer executable was inadvertently changed in 3.6.12 from 'SecondLife.exe' to 'SecondLifeViewer.exe'; the folder and shortcut names did not change, just the actual executable.  Unfortunately, the old executable was not removed as part of the upgrade.

I suspect that you are launching the viewer through a shortcut that you copied or created somewhere that is not updated by the upgrade, so you're still running the old executable each time instead of the one you upgraded.

Check your shortcut and correct the name, or just delete it and copy from the default shortcut on the desktop.  That will use the new name, and you'll escape that cycle.

We plan to stick to the changed name, but a future update will clean up the old executable (it's perfectly safe to just delete it yourself now).

Sorry for the inconvenience.
