Not sure what you are asking. Do you mean, Can you open a file made with 64 bit office in 32 bit office? The answer is yes.

If you mean can you install office 2010 on a 32 bit machine, yes you can. According to MS it installs the 32bit by default, so even if the disc is 64 bit capable, it wont install that unless it can.

I am not sure about that. I guess you can't. But why do you need to change it into a 64 bit ?

32bit software runs perfectly in a 64bit version of Windows. You don't need to change anything.

+1 to Herr_Koos. The OP's 32-bit software will work just fine on the 64-bit OS. Not an issue and no conversion of any sort is required. Simply install the software as you would on a 32-bit system.

There are special instances where you need 64 bit, such as large excel docs and such. Maybe he's asking since he actually needs 64 bit.

Michael Wright, how are you determining that the version you are running is actually 32 bit and not 64 bit?

I appears that Windows Office Professional 2007 will not work with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. When I installed 2007 ultimate, none of the Office Pro 2007 applications (Work, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.) loaded or if it did, I couldn't find it. My first thought was that the Windows 7 64 bit would not accept office 2007 professional. These applications are being loaded on an Aspire One netbook.

What about the opposite? Will 32 bit software run on a 64bit version of windows?

Not true. Office Pro 2007 runs perfectly in Windows 7 64bit. Are you sure you installed Office properly?

You just repeated what I said....

The opposite, which is 64bit software in a 32bit OS, will NOT work.
