  2. This is a great tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.

    Brief but very accurate information… Thanks for sharing this one.
    A must read article!

    Hello! I know this is rather old post and I doubt that you still follow the comments here, however I will try to ask. How do you make this app work on your PC. I have Silverlight installed, page refreshed, but cannot have this start working? Do I need to buy anything (I would love to do it)? There is no explanation on how to it. Could you please help?

    • Many browsers have stopped supporting Silverlight.
      Microsoft has promised to support it until 2020.
      Internet Explorer supports Silverlight but Edge does not.
      But in Windows 10 the default browser is Edge, it looks very much like Internet Explorer and many users mistake it for IE.
      The difference in icons is that internet Explorer has a golden circle a round the e but Edge has none.
      To start IE hit the Windows button and type in “Internet” you should see IE on top of the list just click it and you should start IE.
      Hope this helps.
