Would my 32-bit apps still work if i install them of a 64-bit Win7 OS?? I'm a bit confused..I think that if one has a 64-bit Win7 OS it must work and just not use the features of the 64-bit OS..am i right??

Windows 32bit programs will run fine on Windows 7 64bit, they just don't use the 64bit technology.

Hope this helps

Most programs will work. If a program uses some processes, though (some Norton free services, for example), it will tell you that the program is made for a 32-bit version of Windows and won't work on your 64-bit copy.

In case a file doesn't work in 64-bit, you can always use the handy Compatibility tools pre-installed on your computer; if it's something meant to change system-level files, though, I recommend against it, because it leads to all kinds of nasty errors.

You'll probably never run into any issue of that sort, though. Probably.
