    Is it possible to install 64bit softwares in Windows 7 32 bit OS? Is there any settings I should change to make it work?

    I have Windows 7 32 bit OS in my PC but there are many softwares which I use comes in 64bit. So can I install those softwares in my Windows 7 32 bit OS? Will it create any problem? What are the settings I should change to make it work? What are the disadvantages in installing the 64bit softwares in 32 bit OS?

    hiiiii,
    definitely NO, you cannot install 64 bit applications on 32 bit operating system.but you can install 32bit applications in 64 bit but some software's cannot be installed and if installed also it asks to install 64 bit and those software's may not be work properly and install software's.

    If you have installed Windows 32-bit OS recently in your PC, and you are going to install 64-bit softwares in 32-bit OS.

    Then, many your softwares will not install in 32-bit OS.

    Because, all softwares are not compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

    Some of the softwares are launched in two versions i.e. 32-bit Compatibility Version and 64-bit Compatibility Version.

    For example-
    iTunes is launched in two versions i.e. 64-bit iTunes and 32-bit iTunes.

    So, there are many other softwares that can be installed in their respective OS only.

    dear friend,

    Of course you can install 64 bit applications in your 32 bit OS.
    But how fast that program will work, its totally depends on your PC configuration- i.e on the RAM & on the processor speed.
    There is now backdraws if you install 64 bit program on your 34 bit machine- you've to just keep in mind that the computer must not get slow.
    You need to install a 3rd party software to install 64 bit programs.
    Download vmware software & make an image to do so.

    Go to the following link to download it free-

    http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

    Hope these info will help you a lot.

    HI........

    yes you can install the 64 bit software's but those files are showing so much of errors

    -->firstly it will show it was installing successfully but at the end

    -->this software is not compatible to your system like this message will be shown to you

    -->you change the any changes it is not possible to install the 64 bit software's into the 32 bit os

    -->the good decision was adjust with 32 bit files (or) change the processor to 64 bit

    Hi friend,
    It is not possible to install Windows 7 64bit softwares to Windows 7 32bit because 64bit OS needs 64 bit BIOS
    each one has each option you may install some softwares but not all
    some of the softwares are common for both OS like media players and all but
    Change will be in some softwares like Photoshop CS5 its different in both OS
    REGARDS..................
