Error installing Silverlight, says it is already installed

    Question

  • Silverlight will not install.  It says I NEED to install it, then when I do it says it is already installed. 

    Tried uninstalling, then re-installing...that do not work.

    I have EB4, VS2010, and tons of other stuff installed.

     

    Thanks.

    try to search for silverlight in your registry files, and see if
    deleting some of the silverlight entries helps. I know I had the
    same problem, don't remember the exact steps I took, I just
    recall deleting some of the entries manually, and then the
    installer replaced them and it worked ok.

    btw, don't just go crazy with the deleting, experiment slowly,
    entry by entry.

  • In the internet explorers options programs tab press the manage addons button.   Make sure microsoft silverlight is enabled in the list of addons
