Your operating system does not support the 64-bit version of Silverlight.

You might get this message every time you  try to install Silverlight 5, and there are no solutions offered. Your system meets all the stated requirements, you would definitely be baffled.

Your operating system does not support the 64-bit version of Silverlight.

Basically, the 64 bit Silverlight is what you would be given for download. You might need to check for the 32 bit installable version.

The 32 bit version could be downloaded here.

It’s always better to have the latest version for development purpose … go ahead make it work !

    Thanks for the help. Still baffled why the 64 bit version didn’t work on my 64 bit system but whatever.

    • Issue can occur if you have a 32-bit system , on which a 64-bit OS is installed too. Mine was of this config and 64-bit never worked .. while all other 64bit apps installed without error except this one 🙂
