Adobe Flash Player

On a 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium (SP1), should I install
_both_ the 32- and 64-bit versions of Adobe Flash Player?

Most (but not all) of the software installed is 32-bit, including
Firefox 10. I also use Internet Explorer 9.

Thanks.

Yes, unless you will never use a 64 bit browser. The 64 bit Flash
installer includes both 32 and 64 bit versions. With the size of Windows
7 and the capacity of modern hard drives, leaving the 64 bit version
out to save a few megabytes is silly.

It's not that I don't want to install both because of HD space -- it is
more out of concerns about possible conflicts! Maybe installing both
the 32- and 64-bit versions could cause stability problems. I don't
know, I am not an expert on these things.

I talked to somebody who knows computers today and he told me that if I
install the 64-bit bersion of Adobe Flash Player it also covers 32-bit
software that might need it such as my Firefox 10.

I will just add that it installs two independent versions in two
separate locations, not just one build that covers both:

C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

You're correct. I just meant it was a single download.

I see. Thanks Dave and Bruce for your help.
