Windows 7: Problem installing Sliverlight WMC

Problem installing Sliverlight WMC

Hi I am having an issue with a clean install of Win7 Ult. When I try to use MSN player through WMC, it fails to install the Silverlight addon to enable it. Simply gives error, "Please try later". Later did not help!

I have removed and replaced WMC, uninstalled silverlight and reinstalled. Searched google but no answers. Anyone got any ideas?

Well, I sussed it. I had used easy transfer to move files over. It had also moved the MSN player dll file in app data. The error I discovered was caused when it tried to write the file and it was already present. Removing the file allowed install and its working fine now.

Thanks for letting us know the solution, that's great for other readers.

I had a similar issue and my solution was to download the windows cleanup utility. Remove Silverlight, install the latest version of silverlight, and run windows update.
