Silverlight 5.0 does not work wth XP (pkg 3.0) - Which version DOES work? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My streaming was working perfectly until a few days ago. The only thing I can think of that changed is that I updated Silverlight to the newest version.

    Which version works with my current OS (XP Service Pack 3)? I'm not changing the OS anytime soon. I will eventually but, for now, I need my streaming capability back.

    I have spent literally hours on the phone with Internet provider and NETFLIX without any success.

  • Unfortunately, windows xp is now out of support.

    I don't have a win xp machine to hand so I would just have to guess.

    You could try this: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=229320

    If that's no good.

    A site called filehippo has old versions of Silverlight, I have no idea how safe they are to use.

  • Hi wooftown,

    After you get an old version of Silverlight, please remember to set it "Never check for updates" in the Microsoft Silverlight Configuration window as below.
