Confused after upgrading Adobe Flash 11.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I just  upgraded my  Adobe Flash 11, the installation went fine and everything works alright.

But I have noticed in Control Panel > System and Security there is an `Adobe Flash (32 bit ) ' icon which, when clicked on, brings me to various plug-in settings.

 I thought it was supported by 64bit systems.  

I'm surprised that I have 64bit Win7, yet I have 32bit instead of 64bit?

Can somebody shed light on this?

Confused after upgrading Adobe Flash 11.


Adobe Flash Player works fine with 64-bit version of Windows 7.

Maybe it only registers as 32-bit but actually works as 64-bit version. But other than that, all corners of this application works pretty much well with 64-bit versions of Windows 7.

If you are still curious why this is possible, you can send an inquiry by clicking the Contact Adobe link in Adobe’s main page.

For further information regarding Adobe Flash Player 11, here are its system requirements:

  • Windows Server 2003 32-bit, Windows Server 2008 32-bit, Windows XP 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Pentium 2.33 GHz or higher x86 processor, Intel Atom 1.6 GHz or higher processor for netbooks
  • 128 MB RAM
  • Video card with 128 MB onboard video RAM
  • Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher, Mozilla Firefox 4.0 or higher, Google Chrome Safari 5.0 or higher, Opera 11
