What is my Silverlight plugin version and is it up-to-date?
Some sites use Silverlight to display content in your web browser. This site tells you whether you have Silverlight and whether it’s the most up-to-date version. The panel below tells you if you have Microsoft Silverlight installed, what version you have, and if there is a newer version available. If it turns green you’re up-to-date, if it turns red, you need to take action to update to the latest version.
If you need to install or update your Silverlight plugin, don’t allow malicious software onto your computer and be sure to only download installer files from Microsoft’s Silverlight website.
Like Adobe Flash Player, Microsoft Silverlight is a browser plugin that allows you to view intricate applications and high quality video content in your web browser. Without a plugin your browser might not be able to display some content to you - particularly complicated games and protected video content - like the streams served by Netflix and Sky.
