  • Question

  • Maybe the same question, maybe not.  Going from Win7 Home Premium to Win8.  Win8 will not recognize the installed and current Adobe Flash Player?

  • IE Metro is the 64 bit version of IE 10 in Windows 8, and Flas is still not working on a 64 bit browser.

    "It supports HTML 5 for video content, but you can't install toolbars and add-ons in Internet Explorer 10.

    If you are viewing a webpage that requires an add-on or uses Flash, you can view the content by opening the website in  Internet Explorer for the desktop. To do this, swipe in from the right edge of the screen (if you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen), tap or click Settings, and then tap or click Use the desktop".

    Course, try installing Adobe Flash x64 an run IE64, you'll see that there're some pages and videos that don't recognize Adobe, and they keep asking for it.

    Adobe hasn't gone beyond making Flash Players for Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), is MS responsible if they haven't evolved?
