Windows 7: 32/64bit

21 Nov 2009   #1

Windoows Vista-Windows 7

I am awaiting delivery of a 64bit windows 7 pc. Will all or most of my existing software run on this system, or should I install windows 7 32bit on top?

Most of your existing software that would work on 32-bit should work on 64-bit.

You'd mainly just need to ensure there are 64-bit compatible drivers available for your devices. Unless you're using something like a 10-year-old printer or freebie webcam, you should normally be okay.

I'm not aware of anyone (yet?) installing Windows 7 32-bit "on top" of 64-bit.
