I have a dell laptop with the 64 bit Vista OS on it. I want to upgrade to Windows 7, but I want to use the 32 bit OS instead due to the Cisco VPN which requires the 32 bit version of Windows 7. Will I be able to upgrade rather smoothly?

Hi. 32bit Windows 7 will run fine on 64bit machine. It is also important to make sure that you have the 32bit version of the drivers for Windows 7. So far, all 32bit applications I installed on my 64bit machine running on 32bit Windows 7 are running smoothly.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Good luck.

What do I need to Switch from a vista 64 bit Operating System to vista 32 bit Operating System?


You'll need an installation disk, but why would you want to invest the time and effort with Vista. Upgrade to Win7 instead (stay away from 8).

Did you check if your computer is capable of running Windows 8 comfortably? Have you followed the upgrade procedure? 2 GB memory seems rather too little. What was the original Windows version? XP, Vista, Windows 7. Was the original OS 32 bits or 64 bits?

What is the maximum ram capacity of dimension 8200 motherboard


2 gygabytoes are usually the max, you could upgrade the OS to maybe Windows XP 64 bit, but this isn't worth it in such an olde machine! Throw it out and get yourself an ASUS laptop with Windows 7 64-bit, a solid state HD and 4 or more gigabytes of ram instead!.

I have checked the specs of your PC notebook, I can see that you can upgrade the OS of your notebook to windows 7, because your PC passed the requirements for the windows 7 OS.

I hope you have a great day.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista.

I think you have stumbled onto the problem Windows comes in two versions...32 bit and 64 bit. It sounds like you have a new laptop with 64 bit operating system, where as your old system was 32 bit. You can confirm it by going to Start >Control Panel >System and look for the line System Type under System section. It will tell you what type it is. Look at your Office package and it will most likely say 32 bit on it.

Here's a link to Microsoft which will explain the difference and answer many questions.

Cisco VPN Client for 32 bit vista


Download the latest version of the Cisco VPN Client. My version is 5.0.03.0530.

You can also try using the Microsoft "MSIZap" utility to ensure a clean uninstall. It is a command-line utility. You will need the original MSI install file from the Cisco VPN client to use MSIZap.

You can download it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370523.aspx
