64Bit? No Silverlight For You
Not sure what is up with this but... If your using the 64bit version of IE even if you install Silverlight... The control will not instatiate. The Silverlight library specifically disabled htis but I hacked it so that it would try and the object is entirely not avaible in the 64bit version. That wouldn't bother me so much but the Vista Side bar is only 64bit if you are running a 64bit OS so you basically are screwed if you want to build a silverlight gadget that runs on a 64bit version of Vista... No Silverlight for you. To add insult to injury Silverlight works fine in the 32bit version of IE on a 64bit box... But for me that means no Silverlight Gadgets on my 64bit box.
