I have googled and googled and have tried a bunch of different ways to get rid of Silverlight from my mac in order to reinstall an older version in order for Netflix to work again.
I had updated Silverlight to version 5 not knowing that NEtflix would end up throwing a N8109 error. Netflix FixIt recommended uninstalling and reinstalling Silverlight.
Here is what I have tried:
Closed all browsers and dragged silverlight to bin from /library/internet-plugins
Also cleaned out silverlight files from /Library/Receipts and /Library/Application Support
Tried using AppCleaner to find and delete silverlight - Just ended up not being able to find it in any of the categories
Restarted my computer a bunch of times after every uninstall strategy - only in vain
Tried using spotlight and finder to find any traces of silverlight, again to no avail.
Now everytime I try to install the silverlight.pkg (downloaded using the link Netflix provides while trying to play any video) the wizard detects a newer version of Silverlight already present on my HardDisk-Mac HD.
The one thing I consistently noticed was that no matter what approach I took, I always found Silverlight app on my Launchpad which again I couldn't delete straight out.
Anybody been able to break through this wall?
