How to obtain this update

This update is available from the following sources.

Microsoft Silverlight site

The Silverlight installer includes all previous updates in addition to this update. To install the latest version of Silverlight, go to the following Microsoft website:

Microsoft Update

This update is also available from Microsoft Update. If you have an earlier version of Silverlight installed, this update will be offered as "Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB2977218)." If a computer does not have Silverlight installed, this update will be offered as "Microsoft Silverlight (KB2977218)."

WSUS

This update is also available on Microsoft Update through WSUS.

If a computer has an earlier version of Silverlight installed, this update will be offered as "Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB2977218)."

By default, updates that are deployed by WSUS are not installed automatically. The WSUS administrator can configure the server to automatically push an approved update onto connected clients.

Every installation of Silverlight includes an automatic update feature that can automatically install updates on computers that are running Microsoft Windows when the Silverlight plug-in is running and the user has administrative rights. This feature operates independently from Microsoft Update or WSUS.
