    Silverlight

    Does anyone know if there is an msi version of MS Silverlight or how I can get it quickly installed across the network? Usually just use our WSUS server but it been down for a while due to server issues (replaced it now) but it was not high on the list to fix but they just bought software which needs it!

    Might need to use a script unfourtunatly, they were a bit rubbish at providing MSIs for Silverlight:

    Here's how to extract the MSI. I presume it still works with the latest version!

    The instructions in Michael's link to extract and patch the MSI are the same for Silverlight v5.0, except the author of that article forgets to disable the updater (among other things) and makes the mistake of editing the MSI directly (step 6) instead of creating a transform. I have attached the MSTs we use to save you a bit of time.

    To find out what the various settings do, download the enterprise deployment guide for Silverlight v4.0 (SYNACK's link above is to the v1.0 guide).

    Starting with v5.0, there is also a 64-bit version of Silverlight. As with Flash Player, the 64-bit installer for Silverlight contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit browser plugins so you don't need to install both MSIs.

    Followed the link and did the changes as originally posted, but what do I do with the mst files? Sorry never done anything with these before.
    Edit: Ok, just googled it, need to remove current msi I created, re add it but add the mst to the modifications tab if I've read it correctly.
