Internet Explorer fails to recognize installed Silverlight
  

I usually visit sites those makes use of a Silverlight, similar to Microsoft which own Silverlight test page otherwise netflix. However in my situation the Internet explorer forever prompts me to install Silverlight. When I try to install from the prompt, the install not succeeds and shows error code. While I go after the error link, it says that I have to uninstall Silverlight, and offers me a link. Whilst I click on top of the link, it again shows me that 'install silverlight' page. Therefore I uninstalled Silverlight by the use of Control Panel and tried to re-install it once again. The installation was successful. When I try to use it, it again shows me the same prompt. What is the problem with this thing? I am using a new Asus laptop running Windows 7.

Re: Internet Explorer fails to recognize installed Silverlight

It seems to me that your internet explorer is not recognizing the Plug-ins or add-ons properly and sue to this it is not recognizing the silverlight as well. First of you need to manage plug-ins or add-ons properly. First of all make sure that you have enabled the silverlight in your browser. You might have installed the silverlight properly but in order to Internet Explorer recognize the silverlight you must enable it. It might be been disabled by default.

The browser will ask you to moreover run otherwise save the installation file (Silverlight.exe). Click on top of the Run option in order to begin the download. While the download is completed, the browser asks you yet again to run the installer. Now again click on top of the Run to begin the installation.

You may attempt registering the subsequent DLL file, situated within C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Silverlight\npctrl.dll. After this you have to click on Start > Run and enter the following commands: regsvr32 npctrl.dll. Afterward ensure that the "AgControl Class" ActiveX Control is enabled inside the Browser beneath Manage Add-ons option. Now the browser might be recognizing the silverlight properly.

Re: Internet Explorer fails to recognize installed Silverlight

First of all tell me what version of Internet explorer you are using? As you know that there is a new version of Internet explorer available to download. You might need to check on that. However tell me what version of silverlight you are trying install in your Internet Explorer. The new Internet Explorer 9 is fully compatible with silverlight 4. If you are getting problem with this version then there is a new version called silverlight 5 beta. You can check that also.
