  • Oct 19, 2015 Original Title: Silverlight. Hi, May I know why when I access certain website using Microsoft edge it always ask me to install Silverlight instead I already have the Silverlight been installed early. Even I try to install again the Silverlight and browser the website, it still ask me to install Silverlight.

Attempts to restart the computer and try to upgrade, install or uninstall Microsoft Silverlight again end in the same results. This issue can occur if an existing installation or uninstall has become corrupt. To automatically uninstall Microsoft Silverlight, click the button in the 'Fix it for me' section. Does Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) support ActiveX controls or BHOs like Silverlight or Java? Microsoft Edge doesn't support ActiveX controls or Browser Help Objects (BHOs) like Silverlight or Java.
