Windows 8 won't use Silverlight

I have a new laptop which runs Windows 8Smiley Mad.

I can run BT sport on my old pc using Windows 7 and Silverlight but it just doesn't want to know in 8 when I've installed Silverlight as prompted.

As BT don't seem to know either, can anyone help me out please?

Thanks

Re: Windows 8 won't use Silverlight

I'm sure i seen another thread that an older version of Silverlight works on some systems rather than the latest one.

 

Not much help, i know, but it might point you in the right direction.

Windows 8 is awful isn't it? I have it too - if you go onto Internet through the desktop and NOT the windows 8 screen silverlight works, or at least it does for me. Good luck.
