Flash for Windows Vista 64 Bit

Jun 16, 2012 2:00 PM

Flash was not working for some reason this morning.  I've spent HOURS trying to find a flash version 11 that will work with my 64 bit laptop.  HELP!!!!!!

    Flash or Flash Player

     

    Flash Player can be found here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

     

    It is the latest and greatest.

    The Flash Player 11.3 installers have been combined; the installer will install the 32-bit player on 32-bit systems, and install both 32-bit and 64-bit players on 64-bit systems.

     

    The combined installers can be downloaded from http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/flash-player/kb/installation-pr oblems-flash-player-windows.html#main-pars_header

     

    However, since Vista 64-bit is not officially supported by Adobe, I do not know what it will install on this system.

     

    Another unhelpful answer, I know.

    Just curious, as I do not have access to any Vista machine: did running the combined installer actually install both 32-bit and 64-bit players on Vista?  Check these two folders:

    • C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash
    • C:\Windows\syswow64\Macromed\Flash

    Thanks; that is very useful to know.  So the statement that Vista 64 is not supported is actually wrong!

     

    I hope that Chris or other Flash Player team members will notice this topic and issue a correction.
