This is what Microsoft say
Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs.
Device drivers designed for the 32-bit version of Windows don't work on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you're trying to install a printer or other device that only has 32-bit drivers available, it won't work correctly on a 64-bit version of Windows. To learn how to check for drivers, see Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly or go to the device manufacturer's website. You can also get information about drivers by going to the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor webpage.

I had the similar problem. I have a dos based program that works on 32 bit version of Windows (then 64 bit version didn't exist) and I don't know how to convert it to 64 bit so that it would work on the 64-bit version of windows. Thanks.
