Software migration from WinXP 32bit to Vista 64bit

By rsbcbe ·
This is suresh. We have licensed Windows XP Professional 32bit OEM version installed in our system. We now planned to upgrade it to 64bit version of Windows XP or Vista (whichever comfortable). I would like to know is there any procedure to use the existing license of 32bit to be utilized in 64bit OS version? If yes, what are they? And if not, how this transformation can be made?

You asked: "I would like to know is there any procedure to use the existing license of 32bit to be utilized in 64bit OS version?"

The answer is NO.

Then you asked: "And if not, how this transformation can be made?"

The answer is, you purchase another license which usually comes along with purchasing the media to do the install.

One thing to note here though, if your computer hardware is not 64bit hardware (i.e. does not fully support a 64bit OS), you're barking up the wrong tree. In addition, your existing software suites would probably all have to be replaced with the 64bit version of same. If you don't, you'll be running 32bit software on a 64bit OS which defeats the purpose of 'upgrading' to a 64bit OS in the first place.

On top of what ThumbsUp2 said this might not be the best time to upgrade to vista anyways as Microsoft has another OS coming in the near future.
