Steve Clements .Net and then some....

So recently I have been trying to play with VS Orcas and Silverlight but hit a huge wall.  After installing Orcas, the silverlight add-in for it and the silverlight Alpha runtime I still was unable to view any silverlight content, the same "Install Silverlight" graphic would appear.

After some considerable google time I found this link from Walt Ritscher and one of the comments did the trick.


1. Close IE7
2. Un-install all versions of silverlight runtime
3. Delete the registry key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{283C8576-0726-4DBC-9609-3F855162009A}
4. Run IE7 as Admin
5. Re-install the Alpha or Beta silverlight runtime

....and thats it!!!

Don't know what took me so long :-|
