So far, i have been completly delighted not just with the quality of my new build, but also the very noticable extra ram capability.
Unfortunatly, i have discovered what appears to be a long term problem with 64 bit operating systems.
Adobe flash player wont install and therefore, i cant see parts of a lot of web pages, but obviously,a lot a flash intensive sites that use flash media players etc, , utube being one of note.
I am a musician and have my own web page hosted by soundclick where i upload my songs and music. Unfortunatly, there are now whole peices of my page blocked out, and the media player is no longer there
According to Adobe, they are presently working towards full x64 support in vista 64bit enviroments, , but this is going to be a very long wait after doing some research. Its been a problem from long ago for xp x64 users and still hasnt been fixed, and it also looks bad for xp 64 bit users in that, any work adobe are doing to solve this problem will only be directed at vista 64 bit users. Another back hander between microsoft and adobe me thinks !
They do however state that flash player will run in a 64bit enviroment so long as you are running 32 bit internet explorer.
My system is running 64bit explorer and i dont know how to revert back to 32bit explorer anyway , , sounds like an awfull lot of hasle in any case.
My sympathies really go out to all the professional people out there that have paid thousands for adobe software that is essential for their work, only to find out that they cant go near 64bit operating systems and therefore unable to take advantage of the extra ram support that 64bit os provides.
But, , , Getting to the point of my post , ,
Are there any more suprises out there for me to run into with my vista x64 ? ? ?
Any other well known ,major problems like the flash player been noted ? ?
So far, all my hardware is running fine and 90% of my software as well , , ( if only 32 bit, most of it runs in a 64bit enviroment quite well ) so i am overall very pleased with moving over to x64, , but very upset that i cant even go to my own webpage to listen to my songs.
Looking forward to any more information, ,
Many thanks, , kev
