Downloading the Viewer Software

If you successfully registered, your confirmation e-mail should have given you a link to download the viewer. However that link can also be easily found as depicted below via: Help > Downloads. Note: pages may not appear exactly as below because they keep tweeking them.

Go to

Click on "Help" in the upper right corner.

At the Second Life home page, click on "Help." The page changes, but it's usually in the navigation bar toward the upper right corner. If you can't get back to the Second Life home page, but get a login page instead, go ahead and log in. It will take you to a page called, "Dashboard," and there you can find "Help" in the nav bar.

From the drop down menu select, "Downloads."

Click on "System Requirements" to
check if your computer can run the viewer.

You could skip checking "System Requirements," and just try running the viewer. Even if your video card isn't a recommended one, it may still work, albeit without all the effects, or at lower resolution, or the viewer may crash occassionally.

If the screen is showing the correct
operating system, click "Download Now."

At the pop-up screen click "Save File."

When the download finishes, double click on the file name in the "Downloads" box to install it.

I was not able to install the viewer.

I was able to install the viewer,
now I want to learn to use it.
