Do I need 64-bit software to work in the x64 Vista OS?

I am plaining to purchase a brand new Dell T3400 PC which 100% compatible
with 64-bit MS Vista OS. The hardware drivers are no worry. I worry if the
regular software like MS office 2007 and DVD editing program like Roxio 10
will work under 64-bit OS without dedicate for 64-bit spec. Are anyone tried
and works?

Sure it works, Vista 64 runs most 32 bit software but it doesn't like
16 bit software and it's surprising just how much 32 bit software has
16 bit installers which won't work.

Office and Roxio will work perfectly.

I've been running Office and Roxio EMC on 64bit Windows for three years.

All you have to do is google on something like "vista 64 bit compatibility"
to get lots of hits like this old one:

There are also forums on software that runs on 64bits at PlanetAMD64
