I can not install SilverLight. When I click install it reaches 2% the say installation has failed. Could anyone help me. I need SilverLight for Bing Visual Search and so on. Also can't view any PDC2010 video for Microsoft!

I really need help

click here seems to be a fix.


Sorry. I just can't understand it. Have checked the Registery and there is no such entery.

Is there anything simpler

Thanks for the help

Do you have a previous version of Silverlight installed and are trying to install a new version?

I should have said try the simplest thing first - remove Silverlight via add/remove programs in Control Panel - restart computer - then download and install from

click here

Used to have SilverLight installed. Upgraded to Win 7. I not have SilverLight installed before in Win 7. Any suggestions.

Looked again in add remove programs. It is installed, but every website the needs it is saying it is not installed.

Have just uninstalled it. Going to install SilverLight 4 Beta. I am techie so I know what I am doing. Does anybody have any suggestions to why the website says I don't have it installed.

Just reinstalled SilverLigt. Everything now works. Thanks for you help.
