Is there a fix for Silverlight not detecting install? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Silverlight is prompting install but it's already installed, I've tried Firefox, Chrome, and IE with Windows10. I've uninstalled/reinstalled and downloaded a fix hoping to clean a possible file corruption, it still does not work. Are there any other solutions available?

  • Apparently Chrome and Firefox no longer support Silverlight, I finally got it to work by updating Internet Explorer

  • 1: Which Browser are You using? Firefox last weeks quit supporting SilverLight with update to Ver 52.  Google Chrome dropped support for Silverlight a year ago. Microsofts new Web Browser MS EDGE does NOT support Silverlight.

    2: You can download a copy of Firefox 52.0 ESR (Firefox Extended Support Release 52.0ESR) which has re enabled Silverlight.

         SEE web page https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/

    3: Internet Explorer 11 still works but We have found it to be to unstable to trust at this time and is a lot slower than Firefox. We need Firefox as an alternative to IE 11.

    4: Firefox will only give access to 52.0 ESR to people that sign up with them to use it and will be available for approx 1 year.

    5: In the mean time we are in the search for software to run our clinics that do NOT use Silverlight.

    Good luck. I hope this helps.
