    Problem ID1518 when trying to install Silverlight

    Dear all,

    I learned Silverlight4 was out of date thanks to Secunia. I tried to install version5.

    Although version4 has been succesfully uninstalled, I cannot install the 5.

    My system cannot accept 64version of Silverlight, it says.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    But I have a 64 version of Vista, Firefox and Chrome and IE all are perfectly up-to-date.

    I therefore wonder: why doesn't it work?

    please someone help me...

    Welcome
    Lets try the simple things first.
    Download and use Ccleaner to get rid of all the remnants.
    If that does not work use system restore to put the entire thing back the way it was. Download and use the trial version (for 64 bit) of revno and unistall with that.

    I cleaned temp programs and registry keys thanks to Cleaner, as the software proposed to me.

    I then tried the installation...the same error message occured.

    By the way, I can see Silverlight neither in Revo Uninstaller not in Secunia now. So the uninstallation (probably) was a success.

    I'm sorry...

    If it does not show there can still be remanants. Re install using System Restore then uninstall with Revo.

    This will not affect your stuff, but any changes made to the Operating system will go back to the way it way at the restore date that you select

    Thank you for your help Richard.

    I did the System Restauration and re-did the unistallation thanks to Revo - the slowest uninsllation mode amongst the four.
    I also went to the Appdata to delete remaining Silverlight files.

    But when I try to launch the Silverlight installation it still says me that I cannot install - my system does not take 64bits Silverlight. Is that possible if I have a 64VistaWindows- Family Edition?

    Or is this I still have a registry key to delete? Which one?

    OK
    Did a quick Google, seems to be a common problem. No answers. See if you can download the 32 bit, and see what happens.
