    Hi Friend,



    >>>Windows 8 supports silverlight

    >>>It may be happening because you are trying to install incompatible version

    >>>So i will suggest you to download the version which is supported by your OS

    >>>Before installing make sure that your system is virus free

    >>>While installing login as administrator

    >>>Then start the procedure of installing

    >>>Hope so this information helps you

    Thank You

    Hello there !!! since you are not able to install the silverlight into your machine. so there can be the various reasons due to which you are not able to install it into your machine :- 1. either your setup is incompatible. 2. your setup architecture does not match the Os architecture. 3. setup might be damaged. so i will suggest you to use the compatible setup. so that it can be installed into your machine. hope i am clear to you. thanks for posting in EALP.
