Did the leaves fall off? Something not working right? Let us know how we can improve the Photosynth experience.
I have installed Silverlight 3 (3.0.40723.0) on my desktop and yet it doesn't recognize it. I can't install the latest version because I don't have the admin rights to do so. Is it absolutely necessary to have the latest version running?
unfortunately we do require the latest version of Silverlight, 3.0.40818.0, since it contains some updates we need to run our latest release.
I am having a problem with Silverlight as well. I do have admin rights and when I install Silverlight is tells me it was successful. When I attempt to run a synth I get a screen asking me to install Silverlight which it attempts to do and fails with a message that it is already installed. I have uninstalled and reinstall Silverlight 3 times to see if the install was not correct and keep having the same problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Kate
can you please let us know the following details:
Operating System: Vista, Win7, OSX etc
Browser: IE8, FF3 etc
Also can you see other Silverlight sites okay, if you go to the following site do you see a Silverlight application running: http://www.silverlight.net/showcase/
Also can you let us know what version of Silverlight you have installed (in IE8 you can go to Tools->"Manage Add-Ons" there should be a list of plugins that are running with a version number, you should see "Microsoft Silverlight"
I went to that site and was asked to download Silverlight. I removed the one on my computer and reinstalled from that site. Going back to the site it asked me again to download the software. I am running IE8, Win XP and Silverlight 3.0.40818.0. Silverlight saids it installed correctly each time I install it. Also from the add on list it said it was enabled. Thanks for your help.
Kate, it is a beta version, but you might try the Silverlight 4 Beta. I've seen it solve this sort of error on multiple machines lately.
You can download it here:
Just look for where it says 'Windows Runtime'. Let me know if this alleviates your problems.
Having the same problem running Win 7 64 bit from Dell with Silverlight installed already. Silverlight version is 3.0.4536.1000 26.6 mg install.
I cannot view any files and it points me to download the silverlight but when I try it cannot install the file on a 64 bit since it allready has it installed. I downloaded the file and it shows ver 3.0.40818.0 with product version 5.5.0031.0 so I am guessing its for 32 bit version anyway and cannot install on the 64 bit client. and the file size is only 4.823 KB in size.
What version should I be installing to make it work on 64 bit win7 client?
>> To the best of my knowledge (I'm only your fellow Photosynther - not anyone from Microsoft) Silverlight only works within the 32 bit version of Internet Explorer.
>> On Windows 7 64 bit, you have both the 32 bit and the 64 bit versions of Internet Explorer, but you'll need to use the 32 bit IE to run most plugins, Silverlight included.
>> Since Silverlight is only offered in 32 bit, it should automatically install to C:\Program Files (x86)\... (where all 32 bit apps are installed on any 64 bit version of Windows) rather than C:\Program Files\...
>> Your currently installed version of Silverlight ( 3.0.4536.1000 ) definitely needs to be updated to the current version of Silverlight ( 3.0.40818.0 ). If necessary, uninstall the current version, download the installer for the most recent version from http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/get-started/install/default.aspx (installer should only be 4.7 Megabytes), and flush your browser's cache.
Ah, I was not careful enough looking at the version numbers. My mistake. In any case, regardless of your version number from Dell, I recommend uninstalling and getting the most recent version from the site I linked to above.
Also you can try the Silverlight 4 Beta that I linked to above as it has solved any quarrel that individual apps were having with my machines about current versions of Silverlight. (I've seen it solve the problem on both a Windows xp machine and an iMac running Mac OS 10.Leopard.)
Currently Silverlight is not supported by64-bit Internet Explorer (IE). However, we can use 32-bit IE instead. Please use the following steps to set 32-bit IE as the default browser.
1. Click "Start" and then type "Default Programs" in the search box, click on it.
2. Choose “Associate a file type or protocol with a program”.
3. Scroll down to click .mht type.
4. Click Change program and choose Internet Explorer (32-bit) to open .mht files.
Note: If you do not see the choice Internet Explorer (32-bit), please click Browse…, Locate the fileC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe, then click Open to choose the program.
5. Check “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file”.
6. Click OK.
If steps 1 fails, go to next step.
Browse to the below location C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Exp
