Adobe® Flash® Player on 64-bit version of Windows® 7
How can Adobe Flash Player be installed on 64-bit version of Windows 7?
On Windows 7, 64-bit architecture refers to the memory address length that can be referenced by the processor. This also has an impact on the maximum amount of memory, which it utilizes. The 64-bit refers to the size of each piece of data the operating system uses. The Adobe Flash Player may not run on most 64-bit browsers. If you attempt to download the Adobe Flash Player on a 64-bit browser, which does not support it, then you may get an error message. To install Adobe Flash Player properly on your system, use a 32-bit web browser on your 64-bit operating system. 64-bit Windows 7 may not automatically make all applications faster because much of today’s software is written and optimized for a 32-bit era. So you may need software specifically optimized for a 64-bit processor to take advantage of any speed improvements.
Some of the tips to install Adobe Flash Player on a 64-bit version of the Windows 7 system are:
- Uninstall existing versions of Adobe Flash Player
- Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings
- Download and install Adobe Flash Player
Uninstall existing versions of Adobe Flash Player
Before the Adobe Flash Player installation, determine whether you have any of the previous versions installed on your system. You may see if it is working properly and whether it is the latest version available for your operating system. If you encounter any issues with the existing Adobe Flash Player, uninstall it, and restart your computer. For uninstalling it, see 'Uninstall Flash Player' instructions. After the completion of uninstalling, restart your computer.
Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings
Ensure that Internet Explorer security default level is set to 'Medium'. This level may allow you to view ActiveX controls such as Adobe Flash Player. To set browser security to 'Medium', you may open Internet Explorer. Choose 'Tools' and click on 'Internet Options'. Select the 'Security' tab and then select 'Trusted Sites' zone. After that, select the 'Default Level' button. Move the slider until the security level becomes 'Medium'. Then select 'Apply' and the 'Internet' zone. When done, select 'OK'.
