Silverlight no longer works in Chrome 42

leave a comment »

In Google’s continuing effort to annoy me, starting with Chrome version 42, the Silverlight plugin no longer works. This is due to Google no longer supporting NPAPI plugins (see here).

To get around it until September 2015, you can use the below fix to re-enable NPAPI.

1. Type the below into the Chrome address bar and press enter: –
chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

2. Click on ‘Enable’ under ‘Enable NPAPI’

You’ve now got until September to re-write your Silverlight controls in a compatible technology. Good luck!

  • Export to Excel no longer works

In order to fix the problem until Microsoft issue a real fix, you can re-enable the deprecated features by following the below: – Read the rest of this entry »
