Not sure if adobe flash player is available for the 64 bit version of W/7 or not.

buteman is correct, there isn't a 64 bit flash player yet. If you are running Flash Player from within IE8 then you will need to run the 32 bit version of IE8. On my PC the IE Icon pinned to the taskbar launched the 64 bit version but both versions are available from the Start menu. Check from Help, About to see which version of IE8 you are running. I unpinned the 64 bit version from the taskbar and pinned the 32 bit version in its place then flash works ok.

Sorry hit wrong key, that's a prerelease version if you want to try it.

Both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of IE8 were installed with Windows 7 64 bit on my PC.

The executable for IE8 32-bit is located at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

The executable for IE8 64-bit is located at:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

Browse to the 'Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer' folder and create a shortcut to that version of iexplore.exe on your desktop.

Sorry for being so thick Eric but i don't seem to have iexplore.exe I have just iexplore, is it the same thing?

  Eric10 11:10 17 Apr 2010

Yes, that will be the same. Your PC will just be set to hide file extensions as this is the default setting.

Thanks for that Eric, Thanks also to carver

10.1 Flash isn't 64 bit. If you doubt me, look at the Adobe Flash forums, there's a lot of steam being vented over the lack of 64 bit Flash for Windows 7.
