First, what method did you try? e.g. were you using the package manager, or download from Adobe?

Secone, tell us exactly what the problem was?.....what happened?

Note, however, that the only Flash player that Abode has made available for x86_64 OS versions is, as far as I know, only available from labs.abobe.com. So, if you're running a 64 bit system (and browser), you'll need that alpha release. (Works fine on F11 and F12, for me.) All you need to do to install it is copy the library file into /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

I am just now configuring my laptop with 64-bit Arch. I installed both FF and flashplugin from the standard repositories and evertything works. How can I check if I am running the 64-bit versions (of FF or Flash)?

Click on help and about firefox.
This should show which type of browser you are using,something like this:

Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-UK; rv:1.9.0.14) Gecko/2009091008 Firefox/3.0.14 (Debian-3.0.14-1)
I'm actually using Iceweasel,but change the browser config to show FF.
I'd guess you are using 32-bit FF and flashplugin,but i could be wrong.

From the Arch wiki:

Note: As of Adobe Flash Player version 10 and greater 64bit systems are supported. On a 64bit system adding 'flashplugin' will install the native 64bit version. For more look at: Flash and Adobe Acrobat browser plugins
Rummaging around at the Adobe site does not confirm this.

That seems to be correct,at least on my Debian box:

Code:
ade@Pc1:/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins$ ls
flash-mozilla.so          gecko-mediaplayer-qt.so  gecko-mediaplayer.so      libjavaplugin.so
gecko-mediaplayer-dvx.so  gecko-mediaplayer-rm.so  gecko-mediaplayer-wmp.so
Bare in mind that the plugin has been installed via aptitude,rather than manually.
