But try here.

A little more info:
Although Silverlight is nowhere near as important as other plugins, after releasing a beta of version 4 Microsoft did say that its Flash alternative had about 45 percent penetration so far (which is quite impressive, given that Silverlight isn't even three years old; its use by Netflix certainly helps that figure). A 64-bit version, however, is still not in the works.

In February 2009 we e-mailed Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president of Microsoft's .NET Developer Division, and asked him if Silverlight 3 would have a 64-bit version. He told us no, as other browser plugins (and most browsers) don't support 64-bit. Silverlight 3 was released in February 2009 and indeed was only available for 32-bit browsers.

Soon after the Silverlight 4 beta arrived (unsurprisingly, only in a 32-bit version), we spoke with Brian Goldfarb, director of the Developer Platform and Tools Group at Microsoft, about the company's priorities for developing future versions of the plugin.

"The simple answer is no, we are not supporting 64-bit browsers," Goldfarb told us. "Users are running 32-bit browsers because of plugins. It's all about sequencing and timing. We're absolutely going to do it; we're just not going to do it yet." Based on the data Microsoft was seeing, 64-bit browser support just wasn't worth the effort, Goldfarb told us.

Let's hope MS reconsiders in light of Flash's new offering.
