Logging in

My code is digitally signed by me and is cryptographically verified to protect you and to assure you that the code you get is what I authored. It should say "Verified Publisher: Fred Beckhusen", or my name in a dialog box.

 

Click Start.exe and it should ask to install Onlook (say yes). After Onlook installs and is started, Onlook will close and the installation should be finished.

Then click [Start] in the top right of the menu. Opensim should launch, and the grid information it needs will come up after a few minutes.

Estate Dream World has no owner set.
Estate owner first name [Test]: (Enter your avatar First Name)
Estate owner last name [User]:  (Enter your avatar Last Name)

User ID [38a702d3-0d55-4a9a-9ab6-1d91bc030e4c]: PRESS ENTER

All the other questions can be safely answered with just the ENTER key.

After a while the system will tell you that LOGINS ARE ENABLED.

The Onlook viewer will show up on your screen. Log in with the same First Name and Last Name and password you entered in the Opensim box. You should appear in an empty sim.
