Win. 7 Pro 64
Win. 7 Pro & Home

I have windows 7 pro 64 running on my PC and it will run 32 bit apps as well.
Does anyone know if Windows 7 Home Premium 64 will do the same thing?
The reason being is I have a unused copy of XP Pro 64 Student Media/Work at Home Media disk and want to install Win. 7 Home Premium Upgrade 64 into the new system I just built for my Nephew so he can take full advantage of this killer system.

Windows 10 Pro X64

Anything that runs with Pro X64 will run with Home X64.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Irrespective of the edition, the x64 architecture will operate the same. There are only very few compatibility issues with 32 Bit applications.
