I've currently got a windows 32bit OS. The CD only has 32bit software on it. As I've rebuilt my system I would like to format and install 64bit. I have a genuine key but as I said only 32bit software. Is there anyway round this? i.e legit download etc

Same key is valid for x64 as well. U need to do clean install. Most software(95%) works on x64 too. If not, u can use compatibility mode.
