    Windows 8 and IE10


    Hello Guys

    Is Windows 8 x64 using the 64 bit version if IE10 as default as I can't work out what's running what and what flash player is doing what. I installed flash version 10.3.183.7 which I thought was just for the 32bit version but IE10 from program files and program files(x86) are both playing flash content.
    Are the flash downloads now containing both versions because I only have 1 showing in programs.

    Thanks Danny

    Yeah, not sure what's going on there. There doesn't appear to be any difference to IE in program files and program file (x86) on the surface. The one from program files doesn't show it is the 64 bit on in it's About Window, and the program file (x86) one doesn't show an asterisk in task manager at all. :crazy:


    There is a Flash installer (the flash 11 RC form Adobe Labs) for both 32 and 64 bit browser that installs both the 32 and 64 bit flash players if you downloaded and installed the 64 bit Flash 11 RC player installer.

    Also, the Metro style IE 10 doesn't load or use plugins, so it won't use flash player. Don't think that's what you're talking about anyway though.

    No I'm with you don't know what's going on there. The 10.3.183.7 should only be for the 32bit but works for both so either there's no 64bit internet explorer at present or flash player comes with both flavours by default now. I'm betting on the first.
