Silverlight

ANSWERED

Silverlight

I try to watch a movie or tv show on Xfinity and the screen says Silverlight needs to be installed.  When I try to install it, the screen says this version of silverlight is alreay installed.  Then nothing happens and I can't view the movie.  Do I have something set up wrong?

Re: Silverlight

It won't even let me install Silverlight, saying I don't have a 64 bit compatible system, which is not true because I have a 64 bit version of Windows.

Go to chrome://plugins/ and enable the "Silverlight" plug-in.

Re: Silverlight

I went to chrome://plugins and enabled the Silverlight plug-in, but it is still having the same problem.  What else should I do?

Re: Silverlight

After installing the upgrade from XFINITYTV.com, you must restart your computer. Please install it and then reboot your computer and try the video again.

 

Please let me know the results.

Re: Silverlight

I'm having the same issue. I cannot upgrade silverlight when that window opens as it's already installed. I've enabled all plugins and still nothing. I can watch Netflix,  and other things. Help!

Having the same issue as well. Running most current version of silverlight, have tried uninstall and reinstall, cleared cache, etc. Problem is still there. Other sights using silverlight work fine, this isn't on my end.
