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.


Tried all ways, installed the readyness tool, given up now.



A friend came up, she downloaded Sp1 and it installed for her, very strange. So computer is running windows 7 pro SP1 64bit.

Amazing, she must have the touch.

computer now seems to be a bit more responsive, which is difficult as it was ok before


Still not found any sites that use Silverlight

Nope, Iplayer is flash, when it works.
i don't like the new Iplayer anyway, prefer the older version, You can't even do a search on the new one

Not to hijack the thread or anything, but I prefer get_iplayer to search, download and convert iPlayer programmes for offline viewing.

I have no idea about Skyplayer, never used it and I doubt I ever will. I be surprised if it does, but it may do on the Xbox I suppose
