    If anybody has this problem, please do a windows update and this will install an update for your silverlight version that you currently have installed on your pc. When the update is completed and your computer has been restarted. Come to http://www.silverlight.net and if you have an old version, you will be prompted to install the new version, click on run and this will take about 60secs, once installed restart your broswer and you will be ready to use silverlight 4.

    Yippeeee!!!!

  • Did you try unblocking the exe before running it? To unblock-Open File properties and click on unblock.

    I got similar error once and found that file was blocked.

  • I doubt this is not a problem with Silverlight exe or anything related the download files rather could be issue with your OS or ur PC. Are you sure u dont face any other installation issues with other softwares? As I doubt this could be due to some virus in ur machine or the files that you downloaded already got corrupt?
