It's not possible to in-place upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit, or other way around. Your only option is to do a fresh, clean install and re-install all your software.

You can use WET (Windows Easy Transfer) to move your personal files and settings. Just type Windows Easy Transfer to Start Menu's search field and press Enter, then follow on-screen instructions.

Programs must be reinstalled. If they require a key that, also, will be necessary.

If you are missing some Program installers, you might be able to find them on the program's website.

You can audit the Product keys for your installed programs which use licenses by downloading and installing Belarc Advisor.
