  • Seems not.

    Since Microsoft have declared Silverlight will be EOL-ed next year and no plan for enabling extended support, it is very unlikely.

    You should plan migrating it to UWP/Web now.

  • Update: I managed to get Silverlight runtime package file "5.1.10411.0_silverlight5.1.10411.0.dmg".

    By using 7-Zip to open it and examine it's content, the postflight script contains call to "./coregen_x86_64" for XNA and the sort CoreCLR assemblies, which suggest this runtime can run on 64-bit subsystem.

    It may work if you try doing clean install on Catalina if all you want is to use it to run Silverlight Apps. Although possibly no way to get it work in Safari as the plugin file itself probably isn't .NET application and need seperate 64-bit plugin to load correctly.

    And since it has to go through installer, it may just refuse to run (I have no experience on reading installer metadata for Mac package) and you may have to extract the packages manually, put them on the correct folder and run the postflight script, and maybe some other steps needed which is on the metadata itself which I don't know). I'm not a Mac user so no environment to test with it.

  • Microsoft will end total support for Silverlight on October 12, 2021, so it is good to keep Silverlight out of the box. Thank you.
