Win 7 64-bit With Ie8 Won't Play Flash

Why won't windows 7 (64 bit), with ie8 play "flash" but both firefox and safari will. Seems rather strange that it will play on other browsers, but not on the microsoft brand?

Flash Does Not Work On Ie8 With 64-bit Win 7

I have ie8 64-bit installed, but flash does not work with it. When i try to install ie8 32 the site tells me i am running ie8. I cannot uninstall ie8 via the control panel. Hoe can i install ie 8 32 bit?

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Cannot Play Youtube Videos - Upgrade Adobe Flash Player

Cannot play videos such as youtube, i get a message saying "upgrade adobe flash player", but that's not the problem. Ever since i upgraded to ie8, whenever i go to youtube, the player won't play. It gives me a message that says i need to upgrade my adobe flash player. I've done that several times, and it doesn't help. I still get the same message.

Now here's the funny part. When i use firefox, youtube works just fine! Which tells me the problem is in ie. I would actually prefer to use ie instead of firefox (more familiar) but i'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what the problem is, or how to go about fixing it.

Flash Problem With Ie8

I have a problem with i.e. 8 on my vista ultimate 32bit pc, and the odd web site where the flash content is only partially interactive. By this i mean that some flash controls on the page will work, while others will not.

I have contacted the support team for the main site this is happening on ( who have advised me to do the following:

1. Clear your cache and cookies
2. Try using a different web browser (internet explorer, firefox, safari)
3. Try connecting with a different computer (at work, a friend, another computer in the house)
4.connect directly to your cable modem if you are using a router (bypass the router)
5. Disable any firewall you may be using to see if it will go through

I have also tried adding the site to the trusted list, and ensuring that activex controls are allowed to run in the advanced section.

This problem has persisted through i.e. 7 and i.e. 8 on windows vista and windows xp pro sp3. All my machines are fully patched (i run secunia psi regularly). I don't know what else to try to fix this problem. If anyone has any suggestions i would very much like to hear them.

Ie8 And Adobe Flash Player

I work on windows xp family. I've already installed adobe flash and macromedia players on my computer. Other browsers (chrome and firefox) work fine. But when i try to open a video clip, youtube for eg, in ie8, it displays a message that i need to install flash player. When i try to install again the later, the activex control warning message remains unresponsive on click and short while later, ie freezes showing the message that the site wants to install a module that can hurt your computer.

Leaving no means to install the player! Ultimately, i am brought to close ie through the task manager. I've uninstalled and re-installed ie8, but the same result!I wonder if ie has got any problem with the flash player? Or is there something that i am missing?Thanks for the reply.

Can't Install Flash Player In Ie8

Flash player quit working completely over this past weekend and i got the message that i didn't have the current version of flash player installed on my computer. I've tried uninstalling and installing flash player but i all i get in the adobe download manager screen is error: installation failed. I can install flash player through firefox and safari so i believe this is an issue with internet explorer 8. I really need some help. I've tried everything i can think of to fix this issue and spent 3 hours on the phone with adobe support.

Adobe Flash Player Not Working On Ie8

I have a 64-bit version of windows ultimate vista. Flash videos worked fine before upgrading from internet explorer 7 to ie8, now website videos such as msnbc, weatherbug display a message that a newer version of adobe flash is required. I install the download from the adobe site (message successful) but the message persists, no video. On 64 vista os, does the ie8 browser upgrade install a 64-bit browser that is incompatible with the adobe flash player? 

Adobe states that 64-bit browser support is pending post version 10, but not currently available. How does one determine if the ie8 browser is 64 bit or 32 bit? Is it possible to run in 32-bit mode for flash enabled sites? Update 8/6/09. My flash player is now version 10. X and the default ie8 version that i use is 32bit vice 64bit. That combination works with flash video.

Ie8 Adobe Flash Display Problem

I am having some display difficulties with adobe flash with some ie 8 browsers on both vista and win xp. Here is the description. On a test site we get skewing of some (not all) flash movie modules. The whole module is moved out to the right. The specifics with regard to the environments are – win xp and vista, latest version of ie 8, latest version of the flash player. This doesn't happen with all ie 8 browsers. In fact on one test machine we can log in via one account (an administrator account) and the site displays ok with no skewing.

But when we log in via another account (a non administrator account) it is skewed to the right in ie 8. We haven't seen any such problems with other browsers like firefox. Has anyone seen this? Is the administrator account phenomenon significant? I was thinking of doing some experimentation with the site but i don't really know where to begin. I guess checking the source of the page for the correct display against the skewed one would be a start. Any other ideas?

Loses Installation Of Flash Player 10 For Ie8

I have win 7 (starter) (32-bit) on a new acer aspire one 532. I always logon to it with my own profile (this is the only one on the machine and has administrator privileges). Early on i removed the pre-installed mcafee which was causing problems with ie8 (and other apps. ).

Anyway in order to view youtube clips and play other swf files (e.g. Those on the bbc website) i have downloaded and installed flash player 10 (32-bit) from adobe's website - and everything was ok. At the same time i downloaded the version for opera, safari, chrome and foxfire. But then if i reboot / restart the acer it 'loses' the installation of flash player 10 for ie8 and i then have to re-download and re-install it - time and time and time again.

For some reason the installation(s) for opera, safari, chrome and foxfire remain ok and working. However the version for ie8 is always uninstalled during thre reboot / restart. I have also asked acer customer service but they have ignored my posts (well they have my money so i guess that they don't care).

Ie8 Crashes When View Web Pages With Flash

I've got 2 windows 7 machines, but on 64-bit processors with the 64-bit version of windows 7 installed. On both of them if we go to a web page with flash on it, and then close internet explorer 8, it will, always crash.

Why is that?  I can avoid if, if i go to some other web page without flash on it, but man that can be hard to remember and sometimes the flash isn't obvious because it isn't moving, so its easy to forget to go to some web page withou a flash item on it, but that's not the point. The point is why in heck does ie8 crash just because there's a flash element on the page?

Remove Ie8 64-bit

After a few hours with my 3rd party antivirus software help folks, they finally told me that their software works with win 7 - 64-bit but doesn't work with ie8 - 64-bit. I have ie8 - 64-bit loaded on my pc, along with the 32-bit version. I need to remove (uninstall) the 64-bit version.

If i remove ie8 via control panel | programs & features | turn windows feature on or off, by not selecting it, it's gone after a re-boot. However, when i then turn it back on, both the 32 & 64 bit ie8 appear. I need the ie8 64-bit to not be reinstalled (or uninstall ie8 64 bit ;^)

Anybody have any ideas?

Installing Flash On 32-bit Win 7

I just purchased a notebook with windows 7 home premium (32 bit) and am having trouble watching videos with adobe flash. I spent some time on adobe's website, but they did not offer a solution to install the latest version. Every time i clicked on "download flash player", it would just return me to the same screen. I also tried going into "manage add-ons" in my ie8, but did not see adobe or flash listed anywhere, as well as enabling java script in the security options within outlook 2003. Any suggestions?

Adobe Flash Player, Win 7, 64-bit Os

I recently upgraded to windows 7/64 bit and of course i'm having issues with adobe flash player. When i was running vista on the same system prior to windows 7, ie worked and flash worked therefore i was probably running ie 32.

When i try to execute ie 32 bit on windows 7 64 bit, the "circle/hour glass" appears and the goes away immediately with the ie 32 bit screen not displaying. Ie 64 bit does work except for any pages that need the flash player.

I have read many answers that say this should work until adobe releases the 64 bit product. I can't determine what is going on.

Bsod Flash Drive Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate on my desktop, upgrade from vista ultimate. When i insert one of my flash drives, i get a bsod. These flash drives work on my laptop(windows 7 64bit rtm 7100), a vista home premium desktop, and a win xp desktop. I have two other flash drives(pny 4gb, pny 512mb) that work. The two flash drives that don't work are(pny 8 gb, memorex 1 gb).

The problem started trying to transfer files from my laptop(win 7 64 bit) to my desktop(win 7 32 bit). These two drives worked the first time i plugged them in to my desktop. Is the 64 bit laptop causing the problems. I have re-formatted both flash drives in my vista computer.

Ie8 Streaming Audio Problem On Win 7 64-bit

Ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit quit streaming audio on windows 7 64 bit system. Adobe says flash is not available for 64 bit. This is a new intel i7 920 windows 7 professional 64bit 6gb ram. For the past week, ie8 was streaming xm and a local radio station, then stopped working abruptly tonight. With regard to xm, after clicking on 'listen now' button, the status bar says 'errors on page' and won't load the player. I cleared cache, cookies, etc. No luck.

I used the reset button for ie8. No luck. Deleted the google and yahoo toolbars. No luck. I then uninstalled ie8 and reinstalled. Streaming is now partially working but the player wants to install macromedia flash. I link to adobe who says flash isn't available for ie 64 bit. So i tried ie8 32 bit. It won't stream at all. So i downloaded mozilla firefox and it works like a champ.

Any ideas why ie8 is misbehaving with regard to streaming audio? The pit bull in me wants to see ie8 working again as it did initially. Applications installed today included the hp software and driver for my c7180 all-in-one.
