SecondLife helper application is broken

David VanZandt
Last Modified: 2013-12-08
From the IE7 web browser, the link to teleport into a secondlife url is broken -- I recently had to reinstall SL, which appearently broke a "protocol" entry somewhere.

Steps:  in the IE browser I can navigate to "http://slurl.com/secondlife/REGIONZ/244/103/656".   Two of the hyperlinks are both supposed to launch a helper application in order to execute secondlife.exe.  But clicking on the teleport control returns an "application not found".

This is not an in-world problem, but rather something about the browser failing to load the secondlife executable.

On this PC, I am not permitted to run any other browser.
