If Silverlight is installed, uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs then
reinstall it using a fresh download from
http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/install.aspx

If you'd like to install Silverlight, see
http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/install.aspx

Re: Install Failure of KB955305 (Silverlight Update)

If I click the install it tells me:
"The requested version of Silverlight is installed:
version Silverlight 1 GDR 3 (1.0.30401.0)"

So if it's not been updated, what good would uninstalling and
installing the same version be? Or have they applied KB955305 without
updating their point version of the software?

I said to uninstall Silverlight first, did I not?

Re: Install Failure of KB955305 (Silverlight Update)

As per your instructions, Silverlight was uninstalled, computer reboot.
Attempt to reinstall, from the web or from the downloaded file gives an
error 1642 and refuses, claiming there are residuals from prvious install.
The web site offers only the version 2 beta.
Now what?
Cheers

I wasn't questioning your instructions. My question was that the Silverlight
website tells me I've got the latest version. I queried whether a patch had
been released without updating the minor release number of Silverlight.
