Wrong version of Silverlight installed

When users don’t have Silverlight 1.1, they get prompted to install 1.0 which results in a loop of going back to the page only to get told they need Silverlight.

It appears the version of Silverlight.js in the SDK is incorrect and people have been tweaking it to fix it (see hacked Silverlight.js). I haven’t tried this yet but I am currently hosting content on the Silverlight Streaming Servers and therefore have used the Silverlight Streaming specific Silverlight.js from


This script seems to be 1.0 specific so if the user doesn’t have Silverlight, it tries to get them to install 1.0. Maybe I’ll have to write my own detection….
