Hello, I am sorry in advance if this is an obvious question or if it has already been posted, but I could not find any information on it using the search feature.

How do I use SLurls? Every time I try to open them, it says that an instance of Cool VL Viewer is already open. So, I enabled "multiple viewer" function and that works, but every time I want to use a SLurl to teleport somewhere I have to log out of my current session and log back in, I can only use them to teleport with the log in function. Is there a way to open them in the game and teleport without logging out and logging back in? I am not using RestrainedLove. I am on the latest version of Cool VL viewer for Windows x64.

Thanks in advance :D

Congratulations, you just found a bug !

The problem is that the viewer was registering its window class name (not title) as "Cool VL Viewer" but was trying to send SLURLs (when started as a second session just for the purpose of processing a SLURL) to a running program with "Second Life" as the window class name... So the viewer would currently succeed to send the SLURL to a running instance of an official viewer, for example, but not to another Cool VL Viewer instance.

I never noticed it, because, well, I don't use the viewer under Windows, and Linux is not affected (since it uses a different method with D-Bus for SLURLs passing)...

Fixed for next releases, where the viewer will now use "Second Life" for its window class name.

Thanks so much! I'm glad it just wasn't me being silly or overlooking a simple feature. I appreciate your response!
