I uninstalled (from Add/Remove Programs) and reinstalled about 7 times, all with the same result. Is the downloadable Shockwave uninstaller worth a try?
When SW is installing, the "details" show that the files are being installed to /Windows/System32/Adobe, but no such folder exists. On this and all x64 systems, the files are put into /Windows/SysWOW64/Adobe. I don't know if the messages make any difference.
This error is in the System event viewer:
Generate Activation Context failed for C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11\DYNAPLAYER.DLL. Reference error message: The system cannot find the path specified.
As I mentioned earlier, there is no C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11 directory, Shockwave was installed to C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Adobe\Shockwave 11.
Looks like a bug to me. Is there a workaround?
Do Adobe staff read this forum, or just users? Is there some way to file a bug report? I'm not going to pay $$$ for a support case when the problem looks like a bug.

This is a user forum. And since I don't have a 64-bit system yet, I cannot try it out myself.

Shockwave Player 11.6.1r629 now works on WinXP x64, but only in IE8. The plugins for Chrome and Firefox 6 do not work.
