Hello. My name isXXXXX will be your Primary Care Technician and I can assist you with your question.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

With this suggestion, you will think I'm nuts.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

But the first thing I'll ask you to check is to make sure the tablet service is running.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Don't try to make sense of that, because it's not logical at all, but it can cause this problem.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

click start>run

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

type services.msc and press enter

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Look for the service called Pen Tablet

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Right click and set it to automatic and then click start

Customer:

there is no service there under that name

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Please go to each of the following pages in IE and let me know the result.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Silverlight

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

If you still have a problem, please go to this page to uninstall

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Uninstall Silverlight

Customer:

you want me to just type it in the browser?

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

click on it

Customer:

ive got chrome open now

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

copy the url

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

and then you can go to it in IE

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

And finally, here is the link to silverlight 5 beta

Customer:

ok it goes to the microsoft silverlight page ive been here before,when i had it search my comp. to see if I had the latset version installed it said i had 4.0 and it was ready to use, should I uninstall and try to install again? or skip to 5 beta?

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

You can try the version 5 beta right away and if it does fail, you can do the uninstall and install it again.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Any luck

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :
