    The 32-bit version of Office works fine in the 64-bit version of Windows 7.
    Whether other 32-bit programs will work depends on the program. I haven't
    had any problems with most of the 32-bit programs I've installed--but a very
    old one I have, called Band in a Box, wouldn't run.

    Yes, currently Office suites are only 32 bit programs.

    Office 2010 will offer 64 bit office versions.

    Generally speaking, 32 bit programs should run in a 64 bit OS - there are
    exceptions.

    Another thing to keep in mind is this - Some install programs are NOT
    Windows 7 compatible - But, if you run them through a Troubleshoot
    compatibility method - usually they will correctly install to Windows 7 -
    here is a step by step to use that method.

    * Highlight install file - setup-example.exe

    * Right click on file - click on Troubleshoot compatibility - Detecting
    Issues - Resolving Issues

    * Click on Troubleshoot program - The program worked in earlier versions...
    Click on Next button - Highlight Windows Vista - Click on Next Button

    * Click on Start the program - Click on Shield icon (install program loads
    in taskbar)

    * Complete install program first, then - Click on Next - Save these
    settings - Close the troubleshooter
