Windows 7: Windows 7 activation!

Windows 7 activation!

Hi all!

I have got another question for you!
I found this one the site where i want to buy Windows 7:

(Original text in Dutch)
Activatie van Windows 7 is niet mogelijk indien deze in een andere taal is dan de reeds geinstalleerde versie van Windows, dus van Nederlands naar Engels of andersom is niet mogelijk.

Activatie van Windows 7 is niet mogelijk indien de bits niet overeenkomen, dus van 32-bits naar 64-bits of andersom is niet mogelijk.


Translation:
Activation of Windows 7 is not possible when it is a different language than the already installed version of Windows. E.G. Dutch Windows Vista to Windows 7 in english is NOT possible.

Activation of Windows 7 is not possible when the bit versions dont match, e.g. 32-bits to 64-bits or the other way round is NOT possible.

The first criterium is nota problem. Vista (dutch) to 7 (dutch), so thats okay!
But, I want to upgrade from 32 bit to 64!
I know the installation is possible (clean install)
But, will I be able to activate my 64 bit Windows 7?!
Please help me!

Yes, your key will work and activate on 32bit or 64bit, just not both at the same time.

You cannot upgrade from 32bit to 64bit. You will need to perform a clean installation.

Activation should work fine.
