Default Silverlight 3.0 - It Works, Same Fix as 2.0 - 07-09-2009, 09:14 PM

As reported by DownloadSquad, Silverlight 3 is now out. You won't find it officially on the Silverlight site, but you can download it here. You will need to modify the installer package in order for it to install, otherwise you will get the infamous, "Silverlight 2 may not be installed on PowerPC." error. (Yes, Silverlight 3 still says "Silverlight 2" in the error message. It's still version 3.)

I have copied my old set of instructions from http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/mac-...ac-solved.html so that everyone can make the necessary adjustments.

Close all of those windows and then double click the installer package as usual. Install goes as normal.
No news yet on whether there is any increased speed/performance.
