BramSko Level 1 Level 1


I' ve bought a Macbook pro not so long a go, it's running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1 but the Microsoft Silverlight plugin does not seem to work, I tried everything.. Reinstalling, rebooting, installing Flip4mac. Uninstalling everything correctly and installing only the plugin.. I tried different browsers; google chrome, firefox, opera, safari nothing worked.. The plugin is ofcourse installed correctly, I even tried running the browsers in 32bit mode (which was advised at a different forum).. Flash movies are not a problem btw.. I need to use the silverlight plugin to view back TV broadcast from my country.. It does not give an error when I load the movie it just give me a black screen (and no sound) and says closed... 


Does anyone know what to do about it?


Would be much appreciated

The solution may be as simple as opening Safari then opening Preferences under the security icon open Plug-in Settings button, check to see if the Silverlight icon is checked, if it is NOT check the box and then try opening the application or website that uses Silverlight.  This should work.  Also using Firefox website works too, it will indicate whether your version of Silverlight is activated or needs to be allowed for use.   I hope this helps.   make sure you are allowing Silverlight software to run on your machine.
