Carlos -- I'd like to help you get it installed if interested. I have 2 macs (as well as our test labs) and it does install. Silverlight 2 is only supported on Intel-based Macs. Can you confirm your configuration?

Hi Tim,

I have a problem. That when I install Silverlight on my Mac, when I return on the website that I want to see ( http://www.rtl.nl/service/gemist/home/ ) and I want to view at the program. It says that I have not install Silverlight on this site. BUT when I click on the link who bring me to MS and it check and the result is (I have Silverlight install according the MS site)

I have a G4 Mac with 1 GHZ with 1 GB RAM and works on leopard and safari. So you will say that everything is ok. If Silverlight is not working with G4 is then another way to view my programs?

Please Help

Thanks, Greets from Spain

Orlando -- is the G4 a PowerPC mac platform? If so it's possible this site is using Silverlight 2 which is not supported on the PowerPC Mac platform (only Intel-based).

Hi Tim,

Yes this Mac is a PowerPC, So there is no workaround this? And Silberlight 1 is that then working on a Powerpc?

No, Silverlight 2 does not work on PowerPC platforms. Silverlight 1 is supported on PowerPC platforms, that is correct.
