  • Hi again,

    I still can't seem to find a 64-bit Silverlight plug-in for Mac.

  • This is such a joke. If Microsoft wants to appeal to the mass market with Silverlight (maybe they don't) they need to release a 64 bit version of Silverlight for all platforms.

    Nobody is going to restart their browser to use some pointless Silverlight widget.

    Put simply, Adobe already did Silverlight. It's called Flash. And it works on Windows, Mac, and Linux on 32bit and 64bit platforms. I believe there is also a Flash distribution for ARM processors. Microsoft, you completely missed the boat on this one.

  • Interesting.  I seem to have the opposite problem.  I can build my app which uses the SL 4 plugin for 64-bit architecture just fine, but it crashes if I build for 32-bit.  Meanwhile, the SL 5 plugin crashes entirely.  No idea.
