As best I know "usually" 64bit software is for 64bit OS; similarly 32bit software for 32bit OS... You can't mix 'n match.

Your Product Key should work for either 32- or 64-bit versions of the software. Just install the 32-bit version and activate it as usual. If you have a problem with this you should contact AutoDesk support and explain the problem to them.

Just for info:

64 bit hardware will also run 32 bit programs.
32 bit hardware will also run 16 bit programs.
... and so on.

You can't run 64 bit programs on 32 bit hardware unless you have special arrangements such as a virtual machine.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

A 32 bit OS cannot run 64 bit applications, even if the hardware is fully 64 bit capable. A 64 bit OS can run 32 bit programs because this capability was designed in. 32 fits into 64 quite comfortably but 64 into 32 simply does not fit.
