    Details

    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Severe
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: Sprint 16
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:

    • Approvals:

    • Acceptance Criteria:
      Viewer successfully launches on Windows XP.
    • Test Plan:

      Given an account that has a non-empty cache:

      Before launching the viewer, delete one subdirectory (does not matter which one, I think) under the texturecache directory (see log messages in Description)
      Launch the viewer... it should not crash
      Check logs to find warnings that the directory you deleted was not found.

      Description

      1. Obtain Second_Life_2-6-9-229959_Development_Setup.exe and run it to install. Accept defaults (English).
      2. When the installer asks if you want to run, answer Yes.

      Expected: Second Life login screen.
      Observed: crash prompt.

      Because this is pre-login, the crash reporter will fail to send the crash report (DEV-52522).

      Last three lines in SecondLife.log:
