Can I use a key to upgrade Windows 7 32 - bit for the upgrade to Vista 64 - bit, 7 64-bit, with a 64-bit upgrade disc?

It's a bit complicated, but I appreciate all help.

I have the following:
1. access to a genuine copy of Windows Vista 64-bit (regardless of the version I want) through IEEE Computer Society.
2. a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit upgrade disc purchased through a program of student software in 2010. Shortly after using the disk and the key, the laptop I was using died due to hardware problems.
3. a drive to upgrade Windows 7 Professional 32 - bit bought via the same pattern of student software, including an unused key.
Student software system only allows users to buy a copy of each version, so I can't buy it simply another copy of the 64-bit version.
I wonder if it is possible to use the key of the 32-bit version with the version 64-bit upgrade disk to upgrade a 64 bit Windows Vista installation to Windows 7? If this is not the case, unfortunately, I'll be stuck with Vista.

Hi Paldor

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit product key will attempt to activate the Windows 7 Professional 64 bit installation. The only condition, in this case, is that the (Professional) edition is the same.

    Hi all

    See the response of Daavee, but also, note the following:

    Why you want to reformat and reinstall? In my view, it is usually a mistake. With a minimum of care, should never be to reinstall Windows (XP or any other version). I ran Windows 3.0, 3.1, WFWG 3.11, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 now, each for the period of time before the next release is out and everyone on two or more machines here. I never reinstalled none of them (with one exception--a problem that I worked on for weeks without success), and I've never had anything more than an occasional minor problem.

    It is my belief that this erroneous notion comes from the technical support people in most of the major OEMs. Their solution to almost any problem, for they know not quickly answer is "reformat and reinstall. It is the ideal solution for them. It gets you phone turned off quickly, it almost always works, and it does not need to do any real troubleshooting (a skill that most of them has obviously not in any great degree).

    But it leaves you with all the work and all the problems. You must restore all backups of your data, you must reinstall all of your programs, you must reinstall all Windows and updates of the application, you must locate and install all the necessary drivers for your system, you will need to recustomize Windows and all your applications to work the way you are comfortable with.

    In addition to all these things being long and painful, you may encounter difficulties with some of them: you will find all your CDs application? You will find all the necessary installation codes? You have data backups to restore? You still remember all the customizations and settings that can be installed to make everything work the way you like it? Sometimes there are problems that are so difficult to resolve that Windows has to be reinstalled properly. But they are few and far between; RESETTLEMENT should not be a substitute for troubleshooting; It should be a last resort, to do that once all other troubleshooting by qualified person attempts have failed.

    And perhaps most important: If you reformat and reinstall without knowing what caused your problem, you will most likely repeat the behavior that caused it and quickly find yourself in exactly the same situation.

    If you have any problems, post the details of them here; It is likely that someone can help you and you won't have to reinstall.

  • Can I use my Acer revo 70 as a complete computer for the company, I'll put in place?

    I have an Acer Revo 70 with an OS Windows Home Premium 64-bit version. Just in case more information can be useful here are the details of the box:-CPU: AMD E-450, dual-core processor, RAM: 4 GB memory DDR3, drive HARD 640 GB hard drive, OPTICAL: Blu-ray/Super-Multi combo drive, VIDEO: RAD EON HD 6320 graphics, Wireless LAN,

    Pre loaded software: MS OFFICE 2010 (purchase a product key to activate) MS starter 2010. Buy Office 2010 to use the comprehensive software.

    OK, my questions are:-can I use this machine as a full-on computer for small business, I'll put in place? It will be more complete Office? If you can purchase the 2010 version or a more up-to-date version (say 2013)?

    I'm not far from being a computer scientist, so if anyone can help me with my research I would appreciate it if they could keep their answers as simpleas possible. Thank you in anticipation of your help. Pete

    Your PC can handle Office if your documents won't have large databases or excel tables.

    newer is better and since you have Windows 7 (I guess that since you wrote), it is fully compatible.

  • Why say CS5 key-config that I can't use a key (combo) when I can?

    I was watching my keyboard shortcuts (not that I can remember who is assigned half!), but looking at the things that I've done more often and I've ever used (and things I really wanted to not use accidentally, as enabling/disabling save transparency assigned next to 'go' key /..) ...

    But one thing that I have frequently had access to merge... options so I thought, why not Ctrl-Shift-B?   Small message appears and says that I can not use this key as a shortcut.  No reason given - I tried just Ctl - B, but he was assigned to something else (color balance or such and gave an ominous 'you cannot use _any_other_ key to the color balance'...) (Huh?) ... whatever..., I went back to my 1st choice Ctrl-Shift-B.  "You can not use this key as a shortcut...". Grrr... Well, what happens if I just hit enter?...

    Click - it saved.   Save the choice of config... Press Ctrl-Shift-B - Up comes from the merge options.  ?!?!!?

    I had never seen such a weird message - several other combos use CTRL - SHIFT - < letter >, so why would he complain of C - S-'B' but more weird... when I just go ahead and "do..., it works?"  Why should I say that I am not allowed to use a combination of keys when I am?   Is there a law that I don't know?

    I was wondering what else I said I can't do that I can't do and I was wondering what else isn't really true when he gives guests who seem completely illogical - and who are also "bad"?

    'Ctrl Shift B' is automatic color.  Look at your puck history as you try to possibly available shortcuts and see if they do anyting.

  • I can't install iTunes 10.7 to Windows 7, 64-bit, install stops at the space required with miscalculation: restoration of action

    Original title: I can't install iTunes 10.7 to Windows 7, 64-bit

    I tried to install iTunes 10.7 on my computer, but it stops when the installation says: calculation of space requirements. Then he said only: "roll back the action", "installation failed." I don't know what is happening because I have more than 40 GB of free space on my hard drive. I also tried with an older version of iTunes, but it keeps doing the same thing.

    You can not install itunes while another update that uses the microsoft windows (MSI) Setup program is running.

    what you need to do is:
    update of windows OS and restart.
    install itunes to a partition with at least 250 MB of free space.

    Hey janicem42177174,

    Adobe does most support the installation and use of Acrobat 6 because it is a very old version that is not compatible with Windows 7.

    I suggest you to please use the latest version of Acrobat 11.0.10 is perfectly compatible with your operating system with its functions and improved functions.

    You can download a free trial version of 30 days of Acrobat from here:
