Windows 7 - Installing Bing Bar on 64 bit IE8?

Asked By SteveB on 17-Jan-10 03:13 PM
I cannot seem to install Bing Bar on 64 bit IE8 (with Win7 64bit).  32 bit IE8
works fine.

The installation seems to go normally, but nothing is installed.  Bing is not
listed in the View dropdown for toolbars either.

The Google toolbar installed without a hitch and recognized I was running a
64 bit browser immediately.

Hi Steve,

I asked my associates on the Bing Bar team if IE8 (64-bit) is supported.
The official answer is that it is not, and currently there are no plans to
offer a 64-bit version.

I wish I had different news to offer you.

Thank you,

Has the Bing Toolbar for IE9 (64 bit) been made available? I simply can't believe that MS would punt on this.

Thank you.
