Windows 7: Where is MS going? Acrobat Flash & Reader

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

Don't try to use 64bit IE, it's still a bit wacky and not fully supported. Flash, Adobe Reader and Shockwave ALL working on my 64bit Win7 using the 32bit IE.

They have announced Win8 & havenot solved the problems with Win7. I had Acrobat Flash & Reader running & now both have quit.

Falsh player will not run with Win7 64bit. Acrobat reader will not reload because it cannot find MS Office. Why should Acrobat care where MS Office is.

I can remember when if third party programs would't run with Microsoft ther would be law suits against Microsoft.

I logged on MS Fix-It no help. Tried to get help with error code 1606 & received 4 pages of complex registry & other ways to correct th problem.

If they know the problem "Fix It"

Very Anoyed MS User!!
Hi there
Pereplexed here

When did you actually TRY AND TEST this last.

Flash works perfecly with IE8 / IE9 on W7 X-64

Adobe reader has ZERO issues as well. No probs also reading / saving PDF files with IE8 / IE9 either. Same with embedded MS Office documents -- browser handles just fine.

You must have a really strange version of W7 !!!!

I notice you are located in an area that has a HUGE amount of IT outsourcing companies servicing and giving advice to literally 100'000s of IT people in the rest of the world --so I would assume that you have access to the latest software -- probably even before WE can get hold of it so you are equipped to provide the best quality advice and current state of the art to customers in US, Austraila, W. Europe etc.

I'm not saying MS is always good but it's a pointless exercise MS bashing without adequte info to back up what you are saying.

Here's a shot of IE8 64 bit with flash player WORKING -- the BBC clock needs flash player to work -- this image is of the 64 BIT IE8 and flash player

Speed up your ACROBAT READER
It Works for both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. Opera for Windows supports Silverlight. Unfortunately, most of the Silverlight applications check the browser version so Silverlight doesn’t start in Opera. When you click the “Install Silverlight” it redirects to Silverlight download page, and informs...
