It won't work right, you are prob. going to get allot of errors.

It would be different if you have a 32 bit application on a 64 bit operating system, the system would slow down its cycles to 32 bit.

64-bit Windows can run 32-bit applications but not the other way around. Sorta like you can't run 32-bit applications on old 16-bit Windows 3.1.

Unless the app has some sort of way to emulate at 32bit level (yeah, right), then that would be a resounding "no." Reason I say yeah, right, is probably because they will have 2 ver of the app. A 32bit ver and a 64bit ver.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
