Introduction

Warning: This is an archive of previous viewer versions released by Linden Lab. Mandatory viewer updates contain important security and crash fixes as well as new features that aren't supported by older viewers, and should be run whenever possible. Use an old version at your own risk. Note that most older versions are blocked from logging into the Secondlife grid by Linden Labs.

Supported versions and channels

Check the Supported Viewers list to see if a particular viewer can still connect to the main grid. If it is no longer supported, you may need to change the viewer's channel. To set the channel see Viewer parameters, and more information at Get_source_and_compile#Channels_and_Versions.

(NOTE: Some versions are now too old to connect period)

Accessing different grids

If you want to access a different grid for testing purposes, you can do so two ways.

  1. Access grid selection from the login screen. On some versions, you need to type Ctrl-⇧ Shift-G at the login screen. For others, you need to set the debug setting usedebugLogin to TRUE.
  2. Use the client parameters.

Preview Grid Viewer

These viewers are no longer available for download, but notes are retained for historical interest.

In the past, "Beta" viewers were special builds for use on the preview grid. Beginning with Viewer 2, "Beta" viewers are normally intended for testing on the main grid. Since about version 1.20, you can use a normal viewer to connect to the preview grid.
