Unable to down load Adobe Flash if using a 64-bit

I have a ACER notebook with 64-bit operating on Window 7 version and everytime i tried to log into a web page with picture or video (infact most of the websites) i encountered a 'prompt message' requesting for a ADOBE FLASH dowload and everytime i tried to download this flash, I am not able to download it at all.

Would someone be kind enough to explain & clarify please !

Thank you

Please tell more.

I have moved all the home machines up to Windows 7 64 bit and don't see this issue.

Can you tell a little more about this one? How would I duplicate the issue?

Here I installed FireFox and Adobe Flash and it's working.

Uable to download Adobe Flash

Hi Bob

There is no issue if I am using Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox as
my web browser, they both are fantastic web browsers, I have both browser installed earlier.

But if I am using the IE 7 web browser with 64 bit, I just simply cannot view any picture.

Anyway, thanks very much for your feedback.

IE 7? How did you do that?

Here I ran the flash test on Internet Explorer I launched from the desktop icon Microsoft setup and flash works. Is there something more you are doing here? I wonder how to duplicate this.

If you're using

If you're using a 64-bit browser, you'll need a 64-bit Flash. Currently that's only in pre-release testing. If you use a 32-bit browser, the current Flash will work fine.

Unable to download Adobe Flash with 64 bit

Hi Jimmy,

Noted and thanks for you feedback !

Now that I am aware on the non-compatibility with 64 bit and Adobe Flash, I would rather use Google Chrome & Mozilla Fox as my permanant
web browers as, they both work very well.

Thanks again !
