"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that in unavailable"

    Question

  • I'm trying to upgrade from Silverlight 4 (4.0.50524.0) to the latest version.
    Upon downloading and running the setup, I get the following error: 

    Searching for the "silverlight.msi" comes up with this:

    Manually selecting this file gives me this error:
     

    At this point I can only cancel out, in which the installer points me toward http://www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/resources/help.aspx?errorID=1612 - which doesn't give any info other than uninstalling/reinstalling.

    So, I try uninstalling, but end up with:
     

    This time, no silverlight.msi can be located on my computer.

    Any help would be very much appreciated ;)
    Thanks, Pigophone.

  • Hi,

    Try download Silverlight runtime directly. There are two, Silverlight.exe and Silverlight_x64.exe. You can download from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=229320 and http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=229321 respectively.

    Have fun.

  • I'm havig the same problem. Silverlight has a security update... The many links to downloands aren't helping, I get the same error message. Unistalling also gives me the same "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is availiable" error message. I tried removing all the files and still get the same error message. Any insight would be helpful, thanks.

  • I get the same thing as well, can't remove and can't install.  Why do I need Silverlight anyway?  Because some site says I need to use it to view thier stuff?  I guess they need to find something better for displaying things than this.
