Is this really Flash 64-bit or just a wrapped 32-bit one? What version?
The reason I ask is the only 64-bit version being distributed currently by Adobe is a 10.2 preview called Square. (By "preview" I'm thinking pre-alpha.) It was released Feb. 2011. Adobe removed all previous 64-bit versions from their development site, Adobe Labs, last year sometime due to a bad security flaw, and started a new Flash development cycle from the ground up. Or so they said.
