Silverlight Won't Run on Windows 7 64-Bit computers


  • I'm just trying to get started with Silverlight, but nothing works on my 64-bit Windows 7 development computer.  

    I get the message "You need to install the latest Silverlight Developer runtime before creating a Silverlight project.  It provides a link to

    I've tried that install several times and it always comes back to the same message.

    Is there a clear set of instructions for installing VB 10 on a Windows 7 64-bit machine that will make things work.  I've already tried a number of things online procedures unsuccessfully.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.

    I am afraid that the issue is out of support range of VS General Question forum which mainly discusses WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System and Visual Studio Editor.

    I am moving your question to the moderator forum ("Where is the forum for..?"). The owner of the forum will direct you to a right forum.

    As far as I know, if you want to create Silverlight project, you need to install Silverlight Developer. Since you still get issues after installing it, I am afraid that there is anything wrong with the installation.

    I suggest that you can consult on Silverlight forum: forum better response. Anyway, I move it to the moderator forum. Thanks for your understanding.

    Best regards,
