SayIt: This Type of File Can Harm Your Computer

  • Dark
    Light

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

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?"

Chrome_jnlp_Warning 

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.
