    Just joined this forum - so this may have been asked before

    I am planning to upgrade from Vista 32 to Win7 64. There are several pieces
    of software, e.g. Belkin Flip (KVM) that is only 32 bit.

    Can I install this software on a 64 bit OS and will it work?

    I plan before leaping into 64 bit world.

  2. 32-bit software generally works. 32-bit drivers simply do NOT work. If you
    have a specific piece of software, contact the manufacturer.
