Question

When you join Second Life, you're doing two things.  First, you are registering for an account, with a username.  You do that once, and once only.  It's not surprising that you get an error message if you try to register twice with the same username.  Your username is unique, so you can't create two accounts with the same name.  (Yes, you can create a second account with a different username, but that's something else.   Don't worry about that for now.  :smileywink:)

Second, you are downloading a viewer that will let you get in world.  That's the step you are having trouble with.   When you clicked "Download and Install", that should have started the download sequence for copying the Linden Lab V3 viewer onto your computer.  That typically takes a minute or so to download, but could take longer on a slow day.  In any case, you should see some evidence in your computer that a download is taking place. I don't know why that's not happening for you, but you have two choices:

1. Try downloading the viewer again, and be patient. (But do NOT go back and try to open a new account.)

2. Download and install a completely different viewer.  Personally, I recommend the Firestorm vierwer, but you have many other choices.  One of them ought to dowload properly for you.

Downloading a Viewer is a separate procedure, and the account you created is still there for you.

Try this link again, to download and install Second Life.

If you have a problem, check back here, include any error messages you may get.

There are other Viewers you could try, if the Official Viewer is not working for you.
