...looking at the Example on the Instruction screen I see right under THAT:

NOTE the word -multiple, which precedes the -loginuri http://
THIS is incorrect also according to my computer which informs me:
'The name specified in the Target Box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are correct.'
OK, first --> Make sure the Path to SecondLife.exe is correct
default install will leave it in == C:\Program Files\SecondLife\SecondLife.exe
Leave the quotation marks in, they are necessary as there is a [space] in the Path that will wrongly be seen as a delimiter w/o the quote marks
I don't know how necessary the trailing "/" is in the helperuri URL but since it is recommended I stick with it.
The "-multiple" parameter is optional, only required when logging in more than one Username to the same grid at the same time. It tells the SL viewer to start a new instance w/o logging out the first instance.
Here's my shortcut unedited that gets me connected (after supplying Username and Password on the opening page)
"C:\Program Files\SecondLife\SecondLife.exe" -set SystemLanguage en-us -loginuri http://osgrid.org:8002
SystemLanguage can be changed if your preferred language is not the US dialect of English.
Also, be sure Start in... is a valid Path
Usually "C:\Program Files\SecondLife"
And once again the quotes must be present because of the [space] in the Path
