Should 64-bit Flash be included in the Update Pack?

Yes, even though it is not officially supported by Adobe for XPx64.

64-bit Flash Player ActiveX is now available

At the very least I'll make an addon available for those who'd like to try it, but I'd like opinions before forcing on anybody.

Permanent download links for the current installers and uninstallers can be found in General Discussion.

I'd prefer to wait until Adobe gets through their first months work of bug and security fixes.

Maybe in the Nov or Dec pack update.

An addon has been made available in the update pack thread for those that want it. The addon adds entries to the pack's INF so the ActiveX controls are registered one right after the other; as such, the addon requires the update pack.

I've been using the x64 version of the Flash Player in XP Pro x64 and Win7 Ultimate 64bit since they became available as betas and RCs and now in final versions and have had no problems in either operating system. That's why I voted for their inclusion.
