    been there, tried that.

    I did find a workaround after posting my message.

    workaround:
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=229320

    found it here after doing a google search: your operating system does not support the 64-bit setup of silverlight : The Official Microsoft Silverlight.NET Forums

    quite vexing, given all I use silverlight for is the xbox website....

    Hi

    Thanks for the light, it worked, I now have an up-to-date version 5 of Silverlight.

    no prob, found that on another thread on the site, figured I'd do my good deed of the year and help.

    to the mods/admins, is there any way to get that link to the 32bit silverlight posted somewhere more promanent on the site given the common nature of this problem(namely silverlight 64bit not being compatible with vista64bit)?

    The forum link provided is very useful. Indeed the final solution is installing through the extracted msi and msp files from the downloaded End-User Runtime for Windows (64 bit) (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=229321 "Silverlight_x64.exe").

    The aforementioned windows installer files are "silverlight.msi" and "Silverlight.msp" which you can find in "Silverlight_x64.exe" by using 7-Zip.

    the problem there is that I already tried that and the installer refused to run, hence the workaround I posted after several hours digging.

    However the measurement works for me on my Windows Vista Enterprise x64 where installing from either the downloaded executable or the extracted install.exe fails.

    Since it is not a clean installation that I have installed and then uninstalled the x86 version of Silverlight beforehand, perhaps fiddling with the x86 one first is a prerequisite. f*ck Microsoft!
