Windows 10 1903 incompatible with Second life?

Recommended Posts

After some changes in my pc I had to install again windows. I thought to use windows 10 last downloadable vesion which is the famous may update 1903.

In the past after a few SP you would have expected a real stable system. With Windows 10 it's not like this anymore. For sure I can tell you That during my tests for pc fixing I installed and run a windows 10 1803 and it was running SL just fine.

Now with windows 10 1903 anytime I open the sl viewer if I close it using the X button at the top right corner of the viewer the whole windows Sistem becomes depixelated of all colors and I barely can see the button to reboot or do it from keyboard.

When I say close second life I mean not after logging In I haven't logged in yet. This because each and everytime I try to do the settings then close the viewer using the X button to save them I get that problem with the whole windows interface messed up.

I tried to close then the viewer not using the X button but terminating the proces from the classic task manager and yeah this way it worked. I can close it without crashing windows 10 (yet this wouldn't allow me to save settings before terminating the process).

I've tried several versions of drivers also the same older version I used on windows 7 but nothing helps. It seems windows 10 1903 code name 19h1 that sounds like a flu virus is worse than a virus for your pc: more troubles than goodies.

Is there Anyone else has installed windows 1903 lately and is having iussues like this?

In forum I found an similar iussue in the past and I am having something like this a rainbow windows closing SL by X button.

Maybe it's that pity new feature to edit screen light at night I am trying to see how to disable it or even better kick it out from my pc.

This is a known problem with the Windows 10 1903 update.
See BUG-227042 - When exiting the LL SL viewer graphics are borked

After exiting the viewer, you can use the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+WIN+B  to reset the graphics to fix the messed up screen.

Better yet, there is a fix for this bug in the LL Rainbow-RC viewer: https://releasenotes.secondlife.com/viewer/6.2.3.527758.html

Thanks Whirly I'll take a look at it. I am going to test your shortcut too as soon as I get at home.

Wish I never put this damn 1903. Got to see how to download an older version  or even better use a LTSB much more stable and reliable (which I often used for tests but I don't want to use on a pc to avoid to activate it with some sith powers :P)

I found another kind of workaround too for thos of you who have installed it and want to wait for a fix.

What I do is instead of X button to exit use the  Task manager so ctrl shift esc and manually terminate the prcess SL either it would crash the system.

What you're doing is essentially manually crashing the viewer; that can result in problems such as corrupted caches and failure to save settings changes.

There's no need to wait for a fix; the link Whirly posted is the fix, and that viewer has no other changes compared to the current default viewer - it's as specific as can be.

Yes thanks  Whirly and Oz. Today  I finally found time to install and test the fix. It seems working no more psychedelic-allucinated screen when I use Quit button.

No need to wait for a fix. I belive next version will include this fix too.

At least now I can still make it work as I used to and make of it also a portable app with custom cache  and settings path to run from other disk/s.
