Hello,

I am the person that will be helping you today.

You may download Silverlight from the following page: https://www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/Get-Started/Install/Default.aspx

On that page, click the link that says "Install for Macintosh".

After the file downloads, open the file and install it. After that is complete, you will be all set.

I look forward to hearing your feedback concerning whether or not your problem is fixed.

I hope to hear back that all is working. If this is so, please do not forget to rate my help on the top of this page (choose the number of stars and click the Submit button). If it is not, please respond below.

I will be standing by,
Jason

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
