64bit Windows will run 32bit software using WOW, which is Windows on Windows, and basically runs your 32bit software in an isolated space. - I would use the term emulator, but it's not quite right.

If you read this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/32-bit-and-... it will tell you that most 32bit applications will run on 64bit Windows.

Autocad is a special.case. They are known to have several versions that do not support 64bit windows or windows 7 at all. There are also cases of plugins that.just flat out won't run on 64bit windows. This is why it's a good case for XP mode
