Running 32 bit programs on 64 bit windows 7

I have a 32 bit 2010 Office Home and Student version loaded on a 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium version.

I received a 32 bit VBA Excel program that will open fine, but when I enable macros I get the VBA message: Compile error in hidden module: modtimebomb.

I'm told this 32 bit VBA Excel program works fine when running on a 32 bit windows system.

Would this be a problem with the VBA programming or is there a problem with running certain 32 bit excel programs on a 64 bit windows system?

I would be very careful about running anything titled "modtimebomb." But to answer your question I have never had an issue running a 32bit excel program on 64bit windows. I would take a look at the code within that module, it may well open a back door.
