Here I am typing on my spiffy 7 64 bit machine and it installed just fine. Yes it's the full deal.

"Windows 7 Professional 64 bit"

I'm unsure why people say it doesn't work or install.

You will find that alot of your aps will not work with a 64 BIT system.
You are stuck with running 32BIT OS.Take my word for it.

Your answers about Adobe Shockwave an Flash Player.

I have Windows 7 64 Bit Operating System and Adobe Flash Player and Shockwave player works online playing games at When you download and install the games and play them on your desktop that when the trouble begins with shockwave player I don't know about flash player because I tried the prerelease of flash player 10.1 that did not work. Probably have to be a Shockwave player problem. You can play the games on your desktop with out any trouble but that it is not full screen it looks like a letter box format going vertically but you can still play the games. I think they need to come up with an updated version of shockwave player to fix the problem.

Switch to IE 32 bit version of Internet Explorer

i Could't get it to run also. But I was running IE 64 bit version which does't support Flash. Try running IE 32 bit version, you should have a choice of both if you are running a 64 bit machine. Good Luck.

Ran into the same thing

after installing a 64 bit variation of Firefox. When encountering a Flash enabled site and asked to download and install, it was a no-go. Went back to 32 bit FF and it's fixed. Guess we'll need to do without a few 3rd party bells and whistles for now.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
