Re: windows operating systems
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.
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.
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.
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.
what version is the one you are installing? first check where does it apply? is it for 32 bit or 64 bit? OneCare does not support the Windows XP Professional 64-bit operating system. Only Vista 32 bit and 64 bit. Hope this helps. Please dont forget rating. For better understanding please read this:
