Windows 7: Adobe

Adobe

I am so frustrated that I will throw the whole computer out the window.
First it was the continous download problem, got lots of answers, but all were beyond my brain. Thanx for trying.

Now a major problem. I use Adobe flash player & Adobe Reader all the time.

I have Win7 64 bit & IE9 64 bit. I have been try for 3 days to either of these running on my computer. They were working perfectly & sudenly they stopped working. Adobe RDR gives error 1606 & Flash saya will not run on 64 bit IE.

It gives 2 MS urls, both are not available, & Adobe solutions are betond me.

It seems Adobe is at war with MS.

In the meantime I can't play online videos & can't open PDF files.

Any easy solutions to this?

Why doesn't Adobe have solutions for these problems?

Are there any alternatives to Adobe?

Help!

The easy solution is to use the 32bit version of IE. Adobe seem to have something against x64 at the moment

True since the standard Adobe Flash player won't work on a 64-bit browser, but you can also check this out - Flash Player | 64-bit operating systems

Direct link for the "preview" release of Flash Square - Download Flash Player "Square" Beta Preview Release - Adobe Labs

Yep, exactly. There's no reason at all to be using an x64 browser. You're experiencing the exact reasons for this.

When I try to download IE9 32 bit it tells me that it isn't suitable for a 64 bit sustem!!

IE9-32 bit

How do I do that?

There is no listing of IE9-64 in control panel to remove.

Download of IE9-32 informs me that it is the wrong version for Win7-64.

What next?

How do I switch to IE9-32bit?

I can't remove IE9-64 Bit & MS won't allow me to download IE9-32 Bit

I have tried about 5 times to download "Square". For some reason it shows it has been installed, but don't work. It doesn't show up in Control Panel, remove programs.

Since you have a 64-bit OS you have to choose the 64-bit IE9 Download. Once installed follow these instructions to use the 32-bit version of IE9 - Latest Version of Adobe Flash Player

Quote:
If it does, then you can access the 32-bit version by going to C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer, look for "iexplore.exe", right click and create a shortcut on your desktop or wherever,
That will allow you to use the 32-bit version of IE9

Hope it helps.

As for Adobe Square, I haven't used it myself since I don't use the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer, but..... if after installing IE9, you still want to use the 64-bit version, than try installing Square on it and see how it goes.

Let me know.
