Problem with "Teleport Now" of SLurl using Viewer 1.23

Question

  • 0

It's exactly the same for me. Although till a little while ago Slurls operated perfectly on my V1.23, now they open only with V2. I have been trying uninstalling and reinstalling 1.23 to no avail. Let's hear if someone can shed some light on this little mystery.

I am no wizz at what is happening, but it is sounding like LL has changed the opening locations for your application to V2.x.... think of it like a brouser.. when you click on something to open it up, it sometimes opens another tab.. or will automatically open Internet Explorer even thou your default brouser is say Firefox..

 

Thats just my thoughts on it.. I hope what I have said is understandable as I am still half asleep. lol

I use v.1.23 and I just tested this. I can use SLurls and they open my viewer for me and transport me there, I do use a Mac though.

I should learn to read, I guess my observation isn't very helpful.

I have Windows 7 and if I click a SLURL from outside of SL it opens a small popup window listing all Viewers installed on my puter and asks me to select which one to use, there is always one highlighted already (usually Phoenix) though I never had to set one as my default viewer. I am not sure how it picked that one, maybe it is because its the most recent update (the only LL viewer I have installed is 1.23)

Even if you are not getting the same popup  that I get, the systsem must be doing the same, it will know all the viewers you have installed and it has some method of selecting which one is default. Unfortunately in your case it is not offering you the option to select a different one instead & it sounds like it is choosing the most recent update as your default.

Interesting idea. Usually I use Fire Fox. But reading your post I have tried using Explorer 8... and I have the same problem. Yes, as you I also use Windows 7, but no popups windoes for me. Thanks Peewee

I also use FF, I haven`t tried it on IE, I never used to get the popups on XP, so I assumed they were a Windows 7 thing...I wonder where they come from? lol

Here is a pic of the pop-up if it helps, maybe you can find a way to enable it on yours:

I had "Use Second Life (default)" or something similar (I use Fire Fox in Spanish . I have changed to "Always ask" and the problem persist: Windows ask me wich program I want use, I mark SL and then, if I have open Viewer 1.23, the system trry to open the Viewer 2 LOL. But thaknks for all your interest and ideas .

Hello Irene, when you click a SLurl, it tries to open the last Viewer installed

From SL Wiki Using Second Life URLs

 


On Windows, a SLurl opens the most recently installed Viewer.

There isn't an immediate way to change which Viewer launches SLurls, so if you have the current released Viewer and a Release Candidate, whichever was installed most recently will start. You can change this by reinstalling the Viewer.

Re Firefox, see this article Firefox: Options window - Applications panel


The Applications panel lets you choose how  Firefox handles different types of files, such as PDF documents  or MP3 audio clips.

To change how Firefox handles a file type in the list, click on its    name to select it. The drop-down menu that appears will allow you to    choose actions for that type of file:

  • Choose an application: To choose a local or web application to handle a type, select the application from the  drop-down menu. If you want a local application that is not in the  menu to handle the type, select Use other... from the drop-down menu and point Firefox to its location.

As Peewee suggests, use Always Ask and then choose the Viewer you want to open the SLurl.

The location of Viewer 1.23 will be something like C:\Program Files (x86)\SecondLife. One of the easiest ways to check which Viewer you are selecting is to look at the icons, Viewer 2 has a black background.

If you will have more than one Viewer open at once, please check that Viewer 1.23 has --multiple as a login parameter and Viewer 2 has Allow Multiple Viewers in Preferences > Advanced.

Hope this helps, Irene

Oh, so it was ! I think, some time ago, the system opened the display you were using at the moment, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, the issue is clarified (this time I forgot to look at the KB LOL).

Thank you very much, Ellla .

Totally agree. But you are assuming SL is for creation. SL is for facebook lovers

(sorry, only a -sad- joke )
