I have always used the 64-bit version, even when there were only test zip files.

I had not heard until now.

I haven't got a clue what that means.

The only reason I used nspluginwrapper on my 64-bit system was because of presumed

I am glad I no longer need nspluginwrapper. It's onel less thing I need to set up on 
the system to get it running properly.

Thanks for the information :-)
