In most cases any 32-bit program will work under 64-bit. As Ken stated, knowing more about the program (such as the name) would be a great help.

32 Bit

Welcome Bob,
As Ken said, it depends on the program
Windows 7 depending on the install has backward compatability, if you installed 64 bit you will see an x86 folder that will accomodate 32 bit programs.
Depending on how you installed this program OS7 does give you a compatablilty mode for Vista installing. Let us know your specs and we can assist you further.
Regards,

Adrian
