Whenever you change from 32 bit to 64 bit, you MUST do a clean install - all previous installed software will be deleted.

In your case, however, I would not bother...your system only has 1GB RAM, so installing 64 bit will offer no benefit at all. Keep the 32 bit installation as is and save yourself the trouble of reinstalling.

W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?
OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
