There is no change. You'll need to reinstall the os as 32bit. What java software is this?

The only way to change from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version is to completely reinstall Windows. This is also true going from 32-bit to 64-bit. There is no upgrade/downgrade path between these architectures.

Java should work fine on Windows 7 64-bit. You need to download and install the 64-bit version. Whomever told you to change your OS clearly has no idea what he/she is talking about.

If your application is indeed 32-bit you will probably need the 32-bit java runtime--even though your operating system is actually 64-bits.

A couple of the 32-bit applications I use requires the 32-bit Java runtime to function properly on my 64-bit Windows 7 machine. If I only install the 64-bit java runtime, these 32-bit applications do not detect java is installed and will not run.

I'm not sure if this a common issue though as the applications I'm referring to are all part of a suite of tools from the same vendor.

I have seen on some system that needs to have the 32-Bit and 64-Bit of Java installed not sure why but without both the computer has problems with some software. Myself I would not downgrade to 32-Bit Windows 7 however if you want to yes you would need to wipe the system and do a clean install of 32-Bit of Windows 7 but you have to own it otherwise you would need to buy it. What software are you using? Maybe someone may have a work around for your problem or how about using the program in XP Mode?
