We are also excited to announce a new product named Silverlight, is being made available to Microsoft Update site and WSUS customers Tuesday, January 22nd!  The Silverlight product family will include installers and updates for the Silverlight browser plug-in for Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, enabling simplified delivery of media and rich Internet applications that blend animation, audio/video, and interactivity. To learn more about Silverlight 1.0 visit the website at http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight.

 

The Silverlight 1.0 installer will be published to the Microsoft Update site and available to WSUS servers.  It will be applicable for both Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 systems.  For users visiting the Microsoft Update site, Silverlight 1.0 will be published as “optional” and available to download and install interactively.  

 

WSUS Admins, this new product family will appear in the "Products and Classification" selection dialog of your Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server, so be sure to select it if you want the Silverlight 1.0 installer to synchronize down to your server.   The Silverlight 1.0 installer, will be classified as a “feature pack” for WSUS (so you’ll need to be sure you have that classification selected too), and will require EULA acceptance before approving to targeted managed clients.  Additionally, Silverlight 1.0 will be available from the Microsoft Update Catalog http://catalog.update.microsoft.com.

 

Update (2/26): Today we made the Silverlight 1.0 Installer available to Windows Vista systems!  WSUS admins will see it available as a "feature pack" and Microsoft Update users will see it as an "optional" update.

 

Thanks,

The MU Team
