I'm having a problem getting an Adobe Flash (.flv) application to play on Windows 2008 server, with IIS7 on a 64bit machine.

The same application works fine on a Windows 2008 server, with II7 on a 32bit machine, but no on the 64 bit.

64bit Example:  http://www.njcu.edu/academics/media/Ed_dvd/
32bit Example:  http://cms.njcu.edu/academics/media/Ed_dvd/

Note:  On the 64bit server, I created a separate application pool and have set this to work in 32bit mode on the 64bit server.  But it still won't run.

Also note, that I have the .flv and .swf MIME set up in IIS7.

I need help in trying to figure out what the issue is so I can get this running.

Do you think this is my "problem"  or is this just some additional extensions??    What are your thoughts?

By the way, I installed this .. and it didn't fix the issue.
I don't know why but I'm thinking it has more to do with permissions.  Especially since permissions on the 32bit OS are probably different than on the 64bit.
Any other thoughts?

But this is happening when I try to view the Flash file in Chrome, Firefox or IE.  It seems like it is more of a "server" issue that isn't delivering the file properly.

I did what you asked, but nothing changed.  dgofman, .. did you try this before telling me to do it?  If you tried it and it worked, that would have been great.  But I don't think you tried this yourself.  If you did, and if you can see it correctly, please let me know.

Soory man I didn't try but I will fix my mess

The problem on your 64 server we cannot get access to _PGC_Cpgc_3.f4v  file

http://www.njcu.edu/academics/media/Ed_dvd/Sources/_PGC_Cpgc_3.f4v
      
Error: 403 Forbidden
IP: 130.156.5.27:80
      
on 32 bit you don't have such problem so check your server location file

Problem can be in Firewall if file is there and we cannot get outside your box you may need to configure a Firewall to allowing outgoing "f4v" extensions. Or rename your file to _PGC_Cpgc_3.mp4
