  • As many others have also discovered, Silverlight does not run on windows 10. We have just got a Surface Book which will not load the Silverlight even after we have uninstalled and re installed Silverlight 5. How do we get this fixed??

    >> Silverlight does not run on windows 10

    As I know Silverlight is supported in IE 11 but Edge on Windows 10.

    Since support for ActiveX has been discontinued in Microsoft Edge, and that includes removing support for Silverlight. The reasons for this have been discussed in this blog and include the emergence of viable and secure media solutions based on HTML5 extensions. 

    But Silverlight continues to be supported inInternet Explorer 11, so sites continue to have Silverlight options in Windows 10.


    Please feel free to let me know if I misunderstood.
