Hi Experts,

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1.

I'm trying to update, uninstall or repair Microsoft Silverlight v.5.1.10411.0.

Attempts to update result in this error:

"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable"

w:\df5c542574e7bac2631ed92f38ea8ace\

Attempting to uninstall gives the same error, plus this one:

"The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it."

I have Revo Uninstaller Pro v3.0, but its standard install procedure just calls the Microsoft code, giving the same error.

Regards,
Leigh

Thanks, Shiva.

It looks like Microsoft Fix-it for SilverLight fixed the corrupt installation.
The Microsoft Silverlight version is now v5.1.20913.0 (previously v.5.1.10411.0).
