I think I found my own answer... thanks anyway,
So I'm to understand that Adobe has not provided a plugin compatible with the 64bit JRE? I say again... are you f*ig*in kidding me?
That right there would be good reason to avoid this altogether. given the cost of the license for this product certainly there must be a priority for getting this to market. I've found threads dating > a year ago asking, no, demanding this and still not available... that's a lifetime in technological time.
Sorry, but yes: FB4 was built with 32-bit Eclipse, and uses 32-bit Java.
It comes bundled with a compatible JRE, making it easier to run if you have a 64-bit JDK installed, so that's why the bundled copy of eclipse runs successfully on your machine.
As you've noticed, there are many votes in for 64-bit FB already, so keeps those votes coming, and that will help make sure the powers that be provide the resources for a 64-bit future version of FB.
Thanks for the reply,
I certainly hope this doesn't take the same turn as the decision to not
Is there an official ballot box so to speak?
