The one key is for either the 32 or 64 bit platform

You can change back and forth as many times as you like, although only one computer at a time.

Yes, just not at the same time.

Be careful here. Even though you are not intending to run both versions simultaneously, the fact that you might run 32-bit and 64-bit on alternative days can lead to problems, and you could possibly end up with the key being blacklisted. This is because the activation server will detect that the key is already in use. In actual fact, you will not be able to activate using the same key when it is already registered as being activated on another machine. Note that this also applies if you have both versions installed in separate partitions on the same machine. You will be better off getting a new license for the other version to avoid these problems.

You won't have any problems, unless you start switching back and forth several days in a row. If you activate one, and then decide to use the other platform, and try to activate the next day....the worst that will happen is that you might end up phoning it in.

Besides, who activates right away anyway? If you need to downgrade for some reason, use the 30 days wisely to test out the system before activating.

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
