Windows RT

Hello everyone,

Have a small problem.
I'm currently studying for a LT: test for the F.D that I work for and I was given a program on a CD that have videos that run on flash.
When I run it on my PC, no problem, when I try to run it on my Windows Surface RT it says that there are no apps installed to run the program.
I tried to install flash and no joy so far.
I ran it on my friends Windows Surface Pro2 and it runs not problem.

Before I waste a lot of time on this I would like to know if this is a short coming of Windows Surface RT that it will not run flash.

came across and article that said that Windows RT dose not support plug-ins, not sure how old the article was, but can't see a Windows device not running flash, right?

Any help would be great as right now studying is my priority...

Thank all.

Windows RT can run flash. Your program however does not run on RT or some subcomponent of it does not run. It's simply another processor architecture.

No, Surface 2 PRO is x64 architecture - not the same. Your program won't run.

The surface rt uses an arm processor the surface pro uses an intel x64 processor.. you can't run the program on your ipad or android tablet either
