I have installed flashplayer 10 for Firefox 3.5 and Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7 x64. When I visit Test Adobe Shockwave & Flash Players page in IE8 I see a blank square where the flash animation should be. In FF for the same page, the animation shows. It's the same with Youtube, FF works and IE doesn't.
All of the links in this post work with 32bit IE7 on WindowsXP x64.
I've verified I'm using 32bit IE by starting it from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer". The IE menu "Tools > Internet Options > Programs > Manage add-ons" shows Shockwave Flash Object is enabled with a filedate and version of 17/07/2009 7:12pm v10.0.32.18.
- What are the next steps for troubleshooting?
- Any ideas why does FF only works sometimes?
UPDATE: moving Firefox flash issues to a separate question as I don't think the issues are related.
UPDATE2: firefox was related after all. Complete solution turned out to be use the uninstallers from Adobe Labs, then install both 32bit and 64bit flash players for both IE and "all others" (so four installs in all). Thank you funkytown!
