No, you cannot. You would have to do a clean install, which means wiping the old system off your hard drive (backing up everything you want to keep, of course).....nor can you go the other direction either...again, a clean install...

Can you run office 32 bit on a windows 64 bit operating system?


You have 32-bit Office installation package (CD/DVD/file) and 64-bit Windows operating system. Is it correct?

General answer is YES, I can install a 32-bit application on 64-bit OS. I have exactly same situation in my laptop. Both 32-bit LibreOffice and 32-bit MS Office are installed on W7 & W8 laptops and work well.
But NO vice versa. The 32-bit system does not allow to install 64-bit application. The 32b system does not support 64b instruction set required for 64b applications.

My experience is confirmed by many other users:

Will not install os windows xp , do i need a 64 bit operating system or both, 32/ 64 is the processor 32/64 bit loaded os on another hard drive and it comes up to the boot but will not allow me into the...


Check your system bios to ensure that ata is your chosen hard drive for installation. if you attempt to install on the mother boards default of ahci wich is windows vista or 7 default it will not work in order to install windows xp you must choose ata. as far as weather a 64 bit install is necessary, 32 bit will work on both but 64 bit windows must be installed on a 64 bit motherboard.

I installed 4 Gig of RAM memory but only 3.25 shows up.\r\nis there a test I can run to see if the memory cards are working correctly? Thanks. Paul


It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

Sorry, no, you cannot 'convert' the 64 bit system to the 32 bit one. You
have a few options. All of them are coloured by the fact that the OEM
license gives you the right to use just the version you originally
received.

1. Remove the 64 bit version and install the 32 bit. To do this, you
might be able to arrange with the original source to get the 32 bit OEM
version. Alternate, purchase the 32 bit license of the retail version.

If the 64 bit version runs correctly (all the devices/peripherals work
correctly) and the issue is program compatibility:
2. Install the 32 bit in a dual boot arrangement. A Google search will
yield links to various sites with the instructions for doing that. Do
note that you should get the method for installing the 32 bit after the
64 bit
system.


Since you have an OEM version, your first point of contact would be
whoever you got it.
