But did you delete all of SL? You need to delete the cache directory too in order to perform a clean reinstall. The cache location is shown in the preferences network tab. So when you uninstall make sure you also back up any chat logs and get rid of the old cache directory before reinstalling.

Hi, well you didnt need to do all that, it was just Sl servers not responding, login was disabled, happened to me too, so had a night off

and in the morning just logged on as normal.  It happens every now and again. Cheers.

I was able to download the new viewer...and got on late last night.  It may have been just the SL servers...but could see friends on when in my account.  I can get in now using my original shortcut.

 

Thanks all for the responses.

You'll never get a credit when SL is down LOL its down far to often.. still in beta testing.

It kinda sounds like it might be a windows error.. you'll have to go in manually and delet the rest of SL if you dont know or not sure of how to do it

www.tune-up.com has a ROCKING fully working demo that will clear up any mess on a wondows platform.. I used the demo loved it so much I bought the full corp version for my networks.

After ya run that then reinstall SL and ya should be good to go ;-)

I have the same problem, started a couple days ago. SL will run fine but if I logout or crash then when I try to restart it says "Detecting hardware" then in about 5 seconds I get the Windows dialog telling me "Second life has stopped working", Windows is checking for a solution. If I then run the latetest installation file, without uninstalling, SL will load and run fine. But when I quit or crash again the same thing happens. It's like it runs only once and then I have to run the install again. I have tried uninstall and reinstall several times, same results. I tried to do a complete and utter removal of all SL files after uninstalling and got the same results. Maybe something in the Registry or some other file I missed, but this is clearly a bug. I've been in SL over 2 years and never had this problem. Maybe something in Vista contributing to the problem, don't know. I'm going to open a ticket see if LL can help.

As an IT person I just wanted to shed a little more light on this as I expect more people will encounter this problem. I will post any updates.

Ah Ha, I just downloaded the Release Candidate and I was able to log out and restart without having to run the install again. Guess I'll run this 4 now until they force another buggy update on me.
