My apologies if I should not be replying to this at this point, but I wanted to ask if this should work on 32-bit Windows 7 as well as 64?

Hello MLR1, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, it'll work on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. Usually the tutorials will specify at the top if it will only work on specific editions or versions instead of all.
