Windows 7: 64 bit win 7 O/S and 32 bit programs

My main pc runs Vista 32 bit at present & I am considering switching to W7 64-bit. Yes I know that a complete fresh install will be necessary.

I had rather assumed that Office 2007 would run on W7 64bit, but it's good to have that confirmed . I have OUTLOOK.PST stored on my data drive so there will be no danger of losing emails. contacts &c.

Will Office in anyway benefit from being on a 64-bit system?

I have an Epson Stylus SX200 series printer/scanner/copier. Am I likely to encounter any issues trying to install that on 64 bit OS?

Thanx in advance for any advice anyone can give...

Tim

No real benefit, all previous versions of Office are 32-bit.

Check the website to ensure that they provide a 64-bit Vista of 64-bit Windows 7 driver. If there isn't a driver, it may not work. While you can run 32-bit software...you cannot use 32-bit drivers with a 64-bit operating system.
