can you run the 32 & 64 bit from the same copy?
 
hey guys, I have a legit copy of win 7 professional 64-bit, which also comes with a 32bit copy. Can I install both on 2 separate computers and still get proper updates etc? I guess I should clarify this I want to run the 64 bit on my main rig and run the 32 bit version on the backup rig. Could they run @ the same time?

They would be running in the same house with the same internet connection.

TIA!

No. You have paid for one license to be used on one computer. When you go to activate the 2nd computer, it will fail because the key has already been registered.

There may be ways around it, but they can't be discussed on this forum.
