Windows 7 Professional 64bit Desktop Gadgets. Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 64bit Add-on Shockwave Flash Object not available.

Feel free to correct any mis-spellings.

Therefore, Flash Player does not work with gadgets because Desktop Gadgets utilizes Internet Explorer 8 64bit rather then the 32bit version of Interenet Explorer.

Two Points:

On the Programs Tab in Internet Options while in Internet Explorer (64-bit) it states: "Internet Explorer (64-bit) cannot be the default browser."

Internet Explorer (32-bit) is set as my default browser.
