This version of Silverlight.js seems to be outdated, though it's the most recent version available. Silverlight.getSilverlight() calls Silverlight.followFWLink("114576" + verArg); but the LinkID 114576 is outdated, and verArg only contains the first 2 parts of the version passed to the function (2.0 instead of 2.0.31005.0). If you launch the link created (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=114576&v=2.0) in Safari on Windows it will say that "The site that you visited was built for an earlier, beta version of Silverlight." Changing the above mentioned line to Silverlight.followFWLink("124807"); fixes the problem. This seems like a major oversight.

Is there an xaml or c# method to recover the version of Silverlight running ?
I have complained that my users and civilians are getting a bad impression of Silverlight because it keeps nagging them to install it.
If the problem is in this file, can we patch this somehow ?
