SayIt: This Type of File Can Harm Your Computer

  • Dark

If SayIt is launched from an executable file (sayit.exe) instead of with Java Web Start, the instructions on this page are not applicable.

When I attempt to launch SayIt in a Chrome browser I see a message saying, "This type of file can harm your computer. Do you want to keep sayit.jnlp anyway?"


Files of type .jnlp are run by Java Web Start, which is used to launch the SayIt client.

What to do:
  • If you're using a Windows computer you can launch SayIt without Java Web Start using the SayIt executable file with built-in Java (and then you won't have to worry about this).
    See Launch & Log In to SayIt/AgentAssist Using SayIt.exe
  • If you need to launch SayIt using Java Web Start, don't worry. The sayit.jnlp file is safe to launch.
  1. Click the Keep button.
  2. You will see a sayit.jnlp file in the corner of the browser window. Right-click on that file and select Open.
  3. Java will start, and then SayIt/AgentAssist will open.
