thanks WR2 that make it so much easier then having to buy all new software. By the way the people building my new machine said no 32 bit software will run on a 64 bit OS. weird huh!!!
Like WR2 said, 90% of the 32 bit Windows software will work. The exception to this would be some Anti Virus, drivers, and some older software.
DO NOT listen to the people who built your rig. They do not seem to know WTF they are talking about.
