How to Run Silverlight in Opera

By | May 12, 2009 | 11 Comments

How to Run Silverlight in OperaAs I still see some threads popping out on how to install Silverlight on Opera web browser, though will make it clear:

Despite the fact that it gives you an “unsupported browser” error message when trying to download it, ignore that. Just download and install, it will work (there are issues though).

Joe Stegman however, listed a few of them which you might want to consider before installing it:

1. The MS AJAX issue.
2. Silverlight does not work in Opera when using windowless mode (
). This will show a blank page with the Opera status area saying “Click to activate and use this control”. This is being investigated by the Silverlight team and has also been reported to the Opera development team. The only work-around is to not use windowless mode.
3. The Silverlight TextBox cannot receive focus (and therefore you cannot select/change text in the TextBox). There is no current workaround to this issue.

Download Silverlight: Windows | Mac
Close Opera
Install Silverlight
Open any page which requires Silverlight
Enjoy?
