Your issue looks a little different. In the original error what happens is that the installer fails to download and users receive an error that the Web platform installer failed to launch.
By going directly to the MSI we are bypassing the 1st error which is sometimes proxy or firewall related. Without the full install errors I cant say of the webpi or Silverlight issues are related .
For the Web platform installation
1. Try removing the Web Platfrom installer with the following tool. When you install it , there will be a icon added to your start menu. Simply select Web Platform Installer and click remove.
Windows Installer Cleanup tool
2 . Try tio install Web Platform installer from one of the following links.
a. x86 version:
For the silverlight runtime they have another forum here :http://forums.silverlight.net/forums/
Lets us know if you have further questions about Webpi. We can try with the Silverlight runtime but thats not supported on this forum so the Silverlight forms may be better suited to help with that failure.
