Silverlight requests installation despite already being installed

By | November 5, 2016

A recent issue I ran into was a website that prompted the user to install Silverlight.

He already had it installed, and I ensured it was the latest version. The website worked fine when other users logged in. It did not work even after making the user a local administrator.

It had to be a profile setting.

Long story short, I found a blog that referenced but didn’t solve my problem, HOWEVER, deep in the comments was a suggestion to check this ActiveX setting in MSIE. ┬áIf it’s enabled, then disable it and Silverlight should work.

Disable "Allow ActiveX Filtering"

Disable “Allow ActiveX Filtering”
