Greetings! I need some help with Flash Player.

I have a Windows Surface RT 8.1, 32 bit.

I have checked to make sure my browser, internet explorer, has Flash Player. Yes, it does. The Shockwave Flash Object option is Enabled.

I am not being asked to close any browsers, I disabled the Active X in the safety tab and I am not receiving any permission issues.

I went to launch Adobe Flash Player and it seemed to open... But I got a message saying Flash Player is not Applicable to my computer.

Thanks for your time!

Your help is greatly appreciated!
