Wikipedia on Silverlight: Microsoft Silverlight is a web application framework with a scope similar to Adobe Flash. Version 2, released in October 2008, brought additional interactivity features and support for .NET languages and development tools.

Silverlight -- as of Silverlight 3: Another new and notable feature of Silverlight 3 is support for hardware acceleration. In Silverlight 1 and 2, all rendering was done in software, which meant that the performance of complex animations and video playback depended heavily on the capabilities of the host PC. Silverlight 3, however, can take advantage of ...

Yes, Silverlight works perfectly fine in Chrome, at least on Windows. No need for any Dev Version or hackery, it works fine in both Chrome 3 and 4, and the released version of Silverlight 2, 3 or 4 Beta works. Go to http://silverlight.net/, click on Install, ignore the "Your Browser is not Supported" Warning and click on the Windows Download link to ...

The installation of Silverlight itself requires admin privileges, so even if there was an .xpi installer it wouldn't really help. Note that you must have sufficient administrative privileges to install Silverlight.

Are you running Internet Explorer in desktop mode or in tiled/"modern ui"/"metro" mode? Silverlight, and any other browser plugins, are disabled in Internet Explorer's tiled mode. Internet Explorer provides an add-on–free experience, so browser plugins don't load and any dependent content isn't displayed. However, Internet Explorer for the desktop ...

I recently had this issue also, after installing a Windows 7 VM for work. Having not used Windows for quite some time this was very annoying to me as well. I had a clean installation of Windows 7, upgraded to whatever the latest service pack is as of this writing and I'd refused to install Silverlight. However, it appears that Windows 7's service packs now ...

Sounds like you've got a corrupt installer file cached in your browser or proxy somewhere. Delete your temp files and browser's cached files and try the download again.

If you're familiar with .NET/IL Sourcecode: Locate the Silverlight .xap file and save it to your computer. Change the extension from .xap to .zip and open it. You'll find one or more Dlls. Take them, starting with the one looking like it's just for that Silverlight application. (You can probably skip thirdparty ones.) Disassemble that Dll with IL DASM or ...

yes. I went to silverlight.net with it and it worked

Flash doesn't work in 64-bit either. I think we have to resign ourselves to a 32-bit browser world for quite a while... So why haven't Mozilla and Google bothered to release official 64-bit browsers? For the same reason Microsoft hasn't bothered to produce a 64-bit version of its Silverlight plugin: nobody uses 64-bit browsers. That might sound like ...

Silverlight 5 isn't supported on XP SP2, at least officially. You can see that only XP SP3 is mentioned in the Silverlight 5 Compatability chart (System requirements tab), whereas SP2 and SP3 are mentioned in Silverlight 4 Compatibility chart.

Open Internet Options in the Control Panel. Go to the Programs tab, select Manage add-ons. Click Silverlight in the list. In the bottom pane, there should be a link called "More information". This brings up a dialog with a list of sites you have allowed and banned the add-on on. Remove the one you accidentally denied from the list, go there and it should ask ...

I will answer the question in the title, as I just accidentally disabled Enhanced Protected Mode on a site, and wanted to return to the more locked-down configuration. The list of sites for which Enhanced Protected Mode has been disabled is stored in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabProcConfig. The domain is the name, and the value is some kind ...

Possible issue may be that the silverlight plugin is disabled. For example in chrome type 'chrome://plugins' into address bar and you should see silverlight disabled - simply click 'Enable' and all should be well.

I tried to find definitive system requirements for Silverlight but the info is pretty sparse. Check out the following requirements from the MSDN site - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd833062%28v=VS.95%29.aspx This MSDN Blog gives additional detail - ...

I was hoping for the same thing but since it IS a Microsoft product, of course it doesn't have this option and pops up its message at the most inopportune time possible, in the worst way (a yes/no dialog box). It doesn't even have an option to start an update later, when you're not just starting to watch a movie. What it does have is in the preferences ( ...

If Silverlight is not installed on your computer, some websites detect this and offer you streaming video in another format, such as Flash or Quicktime. But this of course entirely depends on these websites willing to make the effort. The only other solution is to use an alternative player software. However, I don't see the difference between installing ...

Silverlight does not touch your files by itself, but it allows trusted (digitally signed and approved) applications to access the file system. The confirmation is shown because it is not possible for Chrome to know when and why the filesystem access will be needed, so it needs you to approve this at installation time. Another possible reason is caching of ...

The problem with Chrome extensions is that the permission messages often tend to scare people because of what they do. By themselves, Chrome extensions are quite limited, and if a Chrome extension has to check and run on each page(for instance, a Moonlight plugin) it has to inject itself into everypage via a content script. Unless the extension developer ...

It sounds like you can't; sorry. (Though you should probably search around some more before taking my word for it.)

There are no checks for Chrome specifically – this script rejects Safari on Windows, and Chrome has the string "Safari" in its user-agent. Since the site only checks navigator.userAgent through JavaScript and not the HTTP header, you can use this extension to spoof the UA.
