    Adobe Flash player 64 bit?

    Is adobe flash player available for 64-bit browsers? I have been recently using 64 bit Internet Explorer and I cant use programs like Cafe World on Facebook. Any suggestions if any exist???

    Thanks.

    Hi Blackhawk7188

    i dont think it is. But you should be able to run the 32bit version with a 64bit O.S

    This only applies to if you use 32 bit browser. I have been using the 64 bit Internet Explorer 8 and I am yet to have Flash Player work...even the instructions posted. I dont think there is directy support for 64 bit addon for internet explorer 64 bit.

    One would think that Adobe would get it's act together and give us a x64 version of flash. It's been how long now that a lot of us have been strugging with this problem? I'm very frustrated with them.

    The supposed fixes do not work properly. If I run my system in x32, certain applications will not run or the OS gets twitchy and unstable and the brower (IE7) gets goofy and closes all open net windows. I'm scared to death to d/l and install IE8, too. I know it's not going to fix the flash problem.

    I really think my next machine is going to be a Mac. I've been struggling with M$ problems since DOS (which I actually perferred over windows).

    Sorry I just needed to rant because I just had to restart my system do to flash error.

    Says right in the link that was provided...

    Adobe Flash Player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run Flash Player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system.
    So, that would be no, there is no flash for 64 bit browsers in Windows. They only have one for 64 bit browsers in Linux.

    They claim they will finally have 64 bit support in a version sometime after flash 10.1, which is in the Beta stage right now.
