Preview Flash Player for IE9 Beta and 64-bit OS’s Now Available

There is now a preview of Adobe® Flash® Player, which we’re calling “Square”, available on Adobe Labs. This preview includes support for two new areas — enhanced support for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 Beta and native 64-bit support for all major desktop operating systems including Linux, Mac, and Windows.

As part of our collaboration with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team, Flash Player “Square” has been enhanced to directly support the hardware-accelerated graphics capabilities in the newest version. In our internal testing, we’ve seen significant improvements in Flash Player graphics performance – exceeding 35% in Internet Explorer 9 Beta compared to Flash Player running in previous versions of IE.

Today we’re also sharing a refresh of the Linux 64-bit version of Flash Player together with the first preview of both the 64-bit Windows and Mac versions. Those who used the previous 64-bit version of Flash Player for Linux should find this new version even faster and more reliable.

These new preview versions are fully functional, so all content should be compatible, but keep in mind this a sneak peak. If you encounter any issues, we encourage you to file a bug in our public database.

Get more details about “Square” on the Flash Player Blog.

    Just bought a Dell Studio w/ i5 & 64 bit Windows 7 home permium. installed IE9 and Square. Embedded flash player still doesn’t work. I had to watch Windows 7 explore videos on FireFox…..I would say that should be very embarassing for you.

    Hi -

    Flash Player “Square” is indeed the preview version of Flash Player that works with the 64-bit IE9 beta. Be sure to follow all the guideline on the Adobe Labs page to ensure the preview version is installed correctly. If you are still having issues getting it to work, check out the forums page:

    I can not view the website when flash player is enabled on IE9 Beta. Why is this?? So annoying! Am having to view as a “text only” website which is pretty pointless….. Am not a “techie” person, so do not know the ins & outs of 32, 64 or 256 bit programs….? I just want to be able to view websites, please?

    Why is it taking so long to release a 64bit version of Flash for IE? A 64bit version of IE has been around for almost two years. Have you got three developers working on this project part-time?

    Any website that has advertisement with flash does not display properly. None of the games I play that use flash will display properly. The flash player box flickers constantly in the upper top left-hand corner of the screen. You cannot click on anything. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash but it hasn’t helped. I’m running Windows 7 – 64bit. Flash works fine on Windows 7 32-bit or Windows XP.
