Known Issues


Updater.exe Registers a False Positive "Suspect-D"

  • The updater.exe shipped with the 2.1.1 Second Life Release Viewer has been found to trigger a false positive result of type "Suspect-D" in McAfee 5.400.0.1158. The same file has scanned cleanly against 40 additional virus scanners. In addition, several separate efforts to rebuild updater.exe on a different machine yielded the same results. For these reasons, we are confident that the McAfee results represent a false positive and the file poses no threat.

Avatars Briefly Appear Nude When Changing Outfits

  • While the currently worn outfit is being replaced, the new outfit may rez flesh-colored until textures finish baking. As a result, your avatar may briefly appear nude.

Shared Media Broken in HUDs

  • VWR-20156 Prim Media in HUDs has no Audio or Interactivity - In Viewer 2.1, Media placed on a prim and attached to a HUD will have no sound and will be unresponsive to interaction (e.g. clicking links, etc.).

Control-F Shortcut Broken in Script Editor

  • Script Editor does not recognize CTRL-F - Pressing Control-F (Windows) or Command-F (Mac) does not open the 'Script Search' floater. Instead, the Control-F/Command-F shortcut opens the Second Life 'Search' floater.
