Windows 7 and Vista Activation FAQ: How do language, version, 64-bit or 32-bit, and source affect ability to install and transfer Windows licenses?

I have windows 7 ultimate 32 bits, but I need to install some programs by Adobe that requires 64 bits version. Is there any way I can upgrade to 64 bits with no new installation? Because I don't want to upgrade all my files and get through all that long process installing all again. Unfortunately I don't have the time too.

Thanks in advance.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

In the future, perhaps try a search first, as this has been asked a million and one times... :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 May 30 '12 at 17:56

Sadly... No. The very core of Windows must be replaced with all the components that are designed around 64-bits instead of 32-bits.
