Windows 7: Internet explorer 9 64 and 32 bit

25 Mar 2011   #1

windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Internet explorer 9 64 and 32 bit

I currently have IE8 32 and 64 bit factory installed on my windows 7 64 bit computer.
Adobe flash player is not compatiable with the 64 bit (as you will know), except the beta one.
So I use the 32 bit IE8 to play you tube etc, which cannot be played on the 64 bit version with the standard flash player.
I want to install IE9, but windows 7 will not allow me to install the 32 bit version so that I can play you tube ( without having to have the beta version of flash player)
I want to install both the 32 and 64 bit, which I have for IE8.
Any solutions?

Just install the 64 bit IE9 installer. It will install both the 32 and 64 bit IE9 browsers. Then use the regular stable Flash player for the 32 bit IE9. It will work.

I think part of the confusion is that Microsoft has a 32 bit and a 64 bit installer. If a computer is running Win 7 64 bit, just go to the official IE9 download site.

Downloads for Internet Explorer - Microsoft Windows

Once the download begins it will scan the computer. When it detects a 64 bit OS it will automatically install both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions and can be verified by looking at the start menu > all programs.

The 32 bit version will be the default browser.
