Staff managed desktop service - removal of Microsoft Silverlight

IT Services are taking steps to remove the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in from the Windows-managed staff service starting this week.

The decision to remove the plug-in is due to the software being deprecated and no longer supported by Microsoft.

The removal will be done automatically on the scheduled dates listed below. There will be no visible message box and no prompts to act on.

The removal of the software schedule is as follows:

  • Thursday 9 November - IT Services and Careers
  • Thursday 16 November - Support staff (Schools and Professional Services)
  • Thursday 23 November - All Windows 10 staff (Schools and Professional Services)

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this service interruption.

If you have any queries regarding this change, please contact the IT Service Desk at
