Windows 7: Silverlight security updates failing - cannot deinstall to

Silverlight security updates failing - cannot deinstall to

Hi All,

Not sure if this thread should be here or in another catagory.

Issue: Silverlight security updates failing -
System indicates that Silverlight is installed and reports as ver 4.0.60531.0
When I try to deinstall windows installed cannot find silverlight.msi.
When I download silverlight from MS website installer says that the silverlight.msi is not a valid install package.

Any fixes ?

Used windows install clean up app. Seems the silverlight.msi did not get captured when the original image was copied at the factory and so could not be found when I tried to de-install. Once Windows install Clean up was run I could then re-install and now updates are being taken.
