Windows 7: Does Netflix w/Silverlight work on Minefield x64?

12 Feb 2011   #1

Does Netflix w/Silverlight work on Minefield x64?

Has anyone been able to get Silverlight to work with Minefield x64?

It's installed and works fine with FF 4.0beta11 but not with Minefield 4.0b12pre.

I understand Minefield 4.0b12pre is not an official release but maybe an about/tweak will allow Silverlight to work and show Netflix instant contents.

You are correct.

Just wondering if anyone has been able to use Starlight actual 4.0 version with Minefield. Since it does not install, I can't watch Netflix instant movies using Minefield.
