  • The system requirements for Microsoft Silverlight and associated technologies are listed below.


    Note that Microsoft no longer supports XP Windows


    * Operating System: Windows 7,Windows Vista; Windows XP Service Pack 2 * Intel® Pentium® III 450MHz or faster processor (or equivalent) * 128MB of RAM You need service pack 2 installed - Right click on the c drive and check general to see if SP2 is there.


    Try to download version 4 of silver light

  • I don't think it will work with XP.

  • Because of this    http://www.pcworld.com/article/172596/how_to_upgrade_from_xp_to_windows_7.html    the best bet is to get a new system. I have an XP, Vista and now Windows 7, the first two are no longer supported  and are 32bit . The system I have now is a combo of 32 and 64bit . The issues you might have is some programs will not run on 64bit.   At some point I will get a full 64bit system.
