Problems with Netflix and Silverlight

    Question

  • Running Win XP Home SP3 on an old Dell Latitude laptop. Instant Netflix works just fine on Firefox. When I try to watch Instant Netflix on IE8, it tells me I haven't yet installed Silverlight. I try to install Silverlight, and of course it tells me it's already installed. So I try to play the movie again, and again it wants me to install Silverlight. Silverlight is not listed in the IE8 addons. I uninstalled Silverlight, ran CCleaner, ran Advanced System Care, restarted, same problem. Just out of curiosity, I uninstalled Firefox. Instant Netflix still didn't play on IE8. Reinstalled Firefox, Instant Netflix runs OK on it. What is going on???

  • Hi,

    Instant Netflix works just fine on Firefox

    So, first try to open other Silverlight Site in IE8.

    If there is no problem occur, it would be netflix issue or IE issue, rather than Silverlight.

    So, you can ask for some helps from IE forum.

    Hope that helps.

     

    Regards

  • I suspect you have the manage add on page only showing currently loaded add ons.  If you show all add ons it should be listed and I suspect disabled
