Windows 7: IE9 vs. Adobe Flash Player 11

IE9 vs. Adobe Flash Player 11

For years, I have use Firefox as my default browser but with all the good things I read about IE9 I decided to give it a try. Almost immediately a problem arose.

When I visited ABCnews and choose to look at this video (Betty White Wanted at the Democratic National Convention | Video - ABC News) or the complete URL Betty White Wanted at the Democratic National Convention | Video - ABC News

I got a message saying:

Flash Version 10 or greater is required.
You have no Flash version plug in installed.
Download the latest version from here.

I downloaded from there and installed it.

Well, when I restarted IE and went to that site again I got the same message.

The problem is not unique to ABC News. It happens on other sites too.

Firefox handles this just fine I think it uses Shockwave Flash. At least that is the only flash thing listed in its plug ins.

Will someone help me get arount this problem?

Thank you very much.

Are you using the 64 bit version of IE? If so you need to either use the 32 bit version or download the 64 bit version of Flash.

IE uses a different version of Flash than FF.

Are you downloading and installing version for IE?

Yes I WAS! I downloaded Shockwave and switched to IE 32 bit. Problem Solved.
