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...
Here's the Microsoft page on it if you want to read it:

Install it on the 64bit machine, right click the program icon, choose properties, run compatibility mode for xp most 64bit machine will run 32 bit programs this way.if this does not work partition the HD to run dual operating system so you have both 64 and 32 bit o.s. which you can choose on startup and run the 32bit programs on the 32 bit operating system.

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:

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.

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 will not work with Vista


yes
if your machine is 64-bit Vista, then you need to install Windows XP-64bit.
you can install Windows 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, it will work. just not as good. However, you can't install 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine.
if the machine is 32-bit then you can install any type of OS you want, you can even install them as dual boot.
