Windows 7: IE9 - No Flash

IE9 - No Flash

Hi all:

I just installed IE9 and I keep getting a notice to install Adobe Flash Player.
I install Flash Player, try again, same message.
Before you ask, I installed both the 32 & 64 bit versions of the browser and the Flash Players- to no avail.

The same videos at YouTube and other sites work on my other browsers.
They will not work using IE9.

Any settings I should be looking at?

TIA!

Try the flash beta 10.3's.

Latest Version of Adobe Flash Player

Youtube vids work OK for me in IE9 with them installed.

OK- installed the BETA version of AFP (v10.3).
I checked Manage Add-Ons and it is enabled.
I re-booted, just in case, still no go...

I get this when I go to Youtube:

Under the Safety options make sure "ActiveX Filtering" is NOT checked.

The "Square" flash is only for 64 bit browsers. If you're using the 64 bit IE9, yeah you need it for flash videos, but the regular Flash 10.2, 10.3 Beta is for the 32 bit browsers. So it depends on if you're using either the 32 or 64 bit browser. Not just if you're system is 64 bit.
