My OS is R2 with all of the updates.
I can’t get Netflix to work because Silverlight 4 crashes as soon as I attempt to play a video. It doesn’t matter whether I’m using IE9, Firefox 6, or Firefox 7. BTW, Silverlight is currently set to compatibility with XP sp3 and I haven’t installed the desktop experience feature.
Some web sites claim that Silverlight 3 will work. However, Netflix detects the version and will only display a message to upgrade to Silverlight 4. There doesn’t seem to be any way to bypass Netflix’s upgrade requirement.
Just to experiment, I tried setting a DEP exception for Silverlight, but I get an error message saying that Silverlight requires DEP enabled to run.
I see that Silverlight is included in your pre-built version of R2, so any suggestions for getting it to work?
Alternatively, would you suggest streaming Netflix using virtual XP on Hyper-V?
Thanks in advance for your time. Don’t hesitate to take a shot at this, even if you’re not 100% sure what the problem is. It can’t hurt.

Thanks! The developer runtime you linked to didn’t work, but it got me to the right place. There is now a Silverlight 5 release candidate download. Works perfectly!
