Is there any way I can install silverlight plugin for Firefox without admin privileges? For Flash there's an .xpi extension so that I can install it on Firefox Portable.
I was able to extract and "install" Silverlight 3 as a plugin for FirefoxPortable v3.6.10 and SRWare Iron (Chrome variant) v6.0.475 using the techniques listed in this conversation at PortableApps.com, and the files from the Silverlight 3 SDK.
Netflix streaming and the few other tested Silverlight applications worked fine. Netflix gave me errors (perhaps DRM issues) on my first attempt with the latest Silverlight.
To summarize the steps:
- Download the Silverlight 3 SDK
- Drill into the Silverlight file (with 7-Zip or similar)
- Extract the following files to the plugin folder of your web browser
agcore.DLL coreclr.DLL microsoft.visualbasic.DLL mscorlib.DLL mscorrc.DLL npctrl.DLL NPCTRLUI.DLL silverlight.configuration.EXE silverlight.configurationui.DLL sllauncher.EXE slr.dll.managed_manifest system.core.DLL system.DLL system.net.DLL system.runtime.serialization.DLL system.servicemodel.DLL system.servicemodel.web.DLL system.windows.browser.DLL System.Windows.DLL system.xml.DLL
