There is no way a 64 bit exe will run on a 32 bit OS. A 32 bit OS simply does not have the capability to do this.

32-bit and 64-bit Windows: frequently asked questions

Can I run 64-bit programs on a 32-bit computer?

If the program is specifically designed for the 64-bit version of Windows, it won't work on the 32-bit version of Windows. (However, most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows do work on the 64-bit version of Windows.)

Device drivers designed for the 64-bit version of Windows don't work on computers running a 32-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.

Simple, you cannot get a quart into a pint pot, but you can get a pint into a quart pot.

Pretty much the same will happen if you try to get 64 bits into 32 bits. The first 32 bits will be fine but the other 32 bits will be all over the place.
