      Flash Player 12 32-bit gets installed on my Windows 7 64-bit / Internet Explorer 9 64-bit system. Why?

          Because Windows comes with a 32 bit AND a 64 bit Internet Exploder. Adobe can't change that.

           

          The ActiveX installer puts both plug-ins on your system per Microsoft requirements.

           

          C/Windows/System32/Macromed/Flash and C/Windows/SysWOW64/Macromed/Flash

           

          Or, perhaps you're referring to the "Flash Player (32-bit)" in the control Panel.

          THAT'S the Global Settings Manager, which IS a 32 bit application ,and again, per Microsoft requirements, it MUST be listed as a 32 bit app in the Control Panel.
