Hi Jboelaert,

Please redownload its install file and right click on the exe file choose "Run as Administrator".  If it doesn't work, please follow smcwhorter's reply on this thread.  It is for Blend but similar with Silverlight.  We need to copy all its exacted files.

Best regards,

Extracted files? What extracted files? The error message clearly states that it could not find a volume to extract to.
