Microsoft Silverlight for Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  •      I recently bought a new laptop which has the Windows 10.  I seem to have problems opening silverlight.  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling.  The search bar keeps putting me to Microsoft Silverlight Configuration which does not run Silverlight.
         Can you please send me step by step in opening this program.  I search forums and nothing helps.  Thank you.

  • Hi friend,

    Let’s download it and check the system requirement first:

    If you are opening some Silverlight application with Edge or Chrome, it may be ask you to install Silverlight even you have installed. Because Edge and Chrome is not supported by Silverlight. Please using IE to run some Silverlight application.

    After installation, we could check it if exists on our system via Start -> Microsoft Silverlight, and we could open successfully:

    For IE, please check these below:

    Tools -> Manage add-ons:

    Please make sure Silverlight is enabled (if the show Disable which means it has been enabled).


    If Silverlight has been enabled, please click the "Tools" menu and choose "Internet options".

     1.Select the "Security" tab, please check the "Enable Protected Mode" checkbox.

     2.Click the "Custom level" button and set the following settings.

     Allow ActiveX Filtering:Disable

     Download unsigned Activex Controls :  Disable

     Initialise and script Activex controls not marked as safe... : Disable

     Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins: Enable

     Script Activex controls marked safe for scripting: Enable




    Hope above helps.
