Topic: Opera 11 breaks the Silverlight viewer

Although Opera is not officially supported by Silverlight, Opera 10 (and 9 before it, if I'm remembering correctly) loaded the Silverlight Photosynth viewer and it functioned normally, apart from a few quirks like zooming using the opposite direction on the mouse scrollwheel to zoom and the zooming occasionally being a little laggy.

When I upgraded to Opera 11, I began recieving error messages like the following:

Am I the only one experiencing this on Windows? If you can use Opera for Windows to view photosynths and panoramas here on the site, which version of Windows and Opera are you using? Thanks in advance.

Hey Nate, no!  I am also having problems.. Both in Chrome 64bit and in FireFox 3.6.13  :(  And Opera whatever-version-I-have...

Ok phew, I got FireFox working again  :D

By the way, Photosynth runs *really* well in Chrome's x64bit version, BUT the darn Direct3DViewer fails to work.

Sadly, also Internet Explorer x64bit somehow won't recognize that Silverlight exists, nor will reinstalling it fix the problem.  Hmmmm.

Opera would be great to have working!

All Silverlight apps will fail to work in any 64-bit browser until Silverlight offers a 64-bit version of their runtime. They did announce that Silverlight 5 will (finally) offer this, so there's a chance that we'll get 64-bit browser compatibility with the Silverlight 5 Beta which has a fair chance of being released during Microsoft's MIX'11 conference in a couple of months.

If x64 compatibility isn't in the Silverlight 5 Beta, then we should definitely have it by the fall when the final version of SL5 is scheduled to be released.

@showmespain, no, you'll just need to use Safari, Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer.
