how often do you go to a website that requires silverlight apart from MS own?
Quite a lot. It may be failing on other counts but that is not one of them.

There won't be any h.264 or mp3 support unfortunately.

Thank you guys for all your related response!! I may install Windows 7 SP1 only, but not Silverlight, as I should be reminded to install it if I do visit sites that require it.
Thanks


Good luck with SP1, I can't install it for some reason, keep coming up with a error.

I tried using Ms update, tried downloading the file and even downloaded the ISO and still fails. I tried using the readyness tool as well.

I also reinstalled a freash copy of windows and tried to install sp1, still no go. so I went back to the system backup I made.,

so at the moment SP1 will not install.

i think he may be referring to the fact that MS changed the product key numbers for the OS'es and office products, went from 10 to 2 about 6 months ago on the technet and technet plus subscriptions

Shame, the less need I would have for Adobe the better, inefficient and instable rubbish.



i got photoshop, after effects and premier installed, I don't use premier much mind you it is a bit bloated and even on this sytstem it is a bit slow.

Photo shop is great and after effects, there is nothing like it, well not for the price anyway and I still got a lot to learn about it.
But I do agree with you that a lot of Adobe stuff is bloated. Premier for instance need s a very powerfull machines to run on, Vegas is better than premier and can run on even a P4 machine, Premier comes to a stop

SP1 installed successfully in my 2 laptops successfully, including even the MS Silverlight. May be I should have read this: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/bott/should-you-install-wi...

prior to your SP1 installation though. You could refer to it in case you've similar SP1 installation issues.

I know what technet is, but never knew it used to belong to another company.

Anyway, Silverlight, may as well install it as you never know,


i think he may be referring to the fact that MS changed the product key numbers for the OS'es and office products, went from 10 to 2 about 6 months ago on the technet and technet plus subscriptions


yep

10 to 2 on the basic and 10 to 5 on the pro. In addition they changed the policy of manual key requests, previously if you used up all 10 you could still manually ask for more keys and they usually would be given, now they refused. If already got more than 2,5 keys when they made the change the keys will still work tho.

Bear in mind tho, these are different to normal retail keys.

A normal retail key is locked to 1 machine, these technet ones will work on 10 unique machines each. So its still 20 installations even on the cheap nerfed one.

you need an install iso with SP1 included then. Shame MS dont supply it on a download link, as its available to technet subscribers.

i have made a windows 7 disk with SP1 in, well I have got the ISO, I will stick it onto disk now, but I will not bother to use it at the moment. I just can't be bothered to reinstall everything again. Do you know how long it takes to reinstall all the plug ins for Vegas?
Not doing it again unless something goes belly up


but thanks anyway.
