  1. should work with 32bit programs, but check with the software vendor to be 100% sure.
  2. As long as the 32-bit programs don't have any legacy 16-bit code in them they'll run just fine.

    Your hardware (processor) needs to be a 64-bit processor to support a 64-bit operating system. More than likely your processor does if it is 3-4 years old or newer.
