On windows 7 64-bit OS, I tried to run netflix the other day but for the first time ever, it told me to download Silverlight. I did, but it errored out at 99% installation with error #1603. I also tried installing a Silverlight update, but that failed as well. Ideas? Thanks.

Had the similar trouble, though, this is how I corrected it, Open Regedit and navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Feature Control\FEATURE_ENABLE_SCRIPT
Check and give full permissions to you on this key.

Silverlight should install now.

I have IE9, which may have different keys than yours. I have attached the reg file (as a .txt file) where the answer may be? FeatureControl.txt

Is your antivirus disabled during installation?  That might help, just a thought.

Sorry, that key should actually read:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\Feature Control\FEATURE_ENABLE_SCRIPT_PASTE_URLACTION_IF_PROMPT
