I tried down loading Adobe flash player 10 (and some other programs) and got this message:


Flash Player support on 64-bit operating systems
Issue
Adobe Flash Player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run Flash Player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system.
Reason
Adobe is working on Flash Player support for 64-bit platforms as part of our ongoing commitment to the cross-platform compatibility of Flash Player. We expect to provide native support for 64-bit platforms in an upcoming release of Flash Player following Flash Player 10.
Solution
To use Flash Player to view Flash content on a 64-bit operating system, you must run a 32-bit browser.

How do I change my browser to 32 bit?

I was up sold to 64bit, is 64bit good or did I upgrade to a lemon?

Try going into your Program Files folder for Internet explorer and see if you can find the executable file for the 32 bit browser. Let me know how that goes.

Its ok, I've found it. Sorry Ron, I was looking too deep in the programs folder.


In the Start menu, go to 'All Programs' and wait for all the programs to show.

Internet Explorer has 2 icons - Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer (64-bit)

Open Internet Explorer via the plain 'Internet Explorer' icon for 32-bit browsing.

Download and run Flash Player and other stuff - all okay

cheers

Phil
