Installing Silverlight:

Installing Microsoft Silverlight requires local administrative rights to your computer.  

  • If you have local administrative rights, just follow the prompts on the screen and Silverlight will be installed.  
    • You may need to restart your browser after the installation completes. 
  • If you do not have local admin rights to your machine, then you will need your IT department to install Silverlight.  
  • More information on Microsoft Silverlight can be found at the link below


What version of Silverlight is required?

  • Silverlight version 5 or greater


Which browser is required?

  • Internet Explorer and Firefox are both fully supported
  • In September of 2015 Google removed support for Silverlight from Chrome
  • PrecisionLender is working hard to migrate the Rate Sheets section from Silverlight to HTML5.  When that is complete, this section will follow the normal system requirements found here:

Troubleshooting Silverlight:

  • Internet Explorer (versions 9 and up) includes a feature called ActiveX filtering, found under Tools. With this option check-marked IE will not load the Silverlight Add-on. This will result in the user being prompted to install Silverlight, even though it is installed.
  • Ensure that Silverlight is enabled: Tools > Manage Add-Ons > Search for SIlverlight and enable if disabled
  • Be aware that Silverlight is no longer supported in Chrome. PrecisionLender is actively working to migrate to HTML5 in the late part of 2015, at which time Chrome will be supported again


Reinstalling Silverlight:
