Is a Windows 7 license key valid for both 32-bit and 64-bit?
I received a NFR copy of Windows 7 Ultimate at the Microsoft launch today. It has a valid (I hope!) license key but the DVD is for 32-bit. Is the same license key valid for 64-bit installations as well? In other words, if I get a copy of the 64-bit
DVD, can I use the license key I just received?
This will be a fresh install onto a system that currently has 32-bit Vista.

Yes, it is valid for either 32 or 64 bit, its up to you which architecture you want to use. Please note 1 key, 1 license. You can't install 32 bit one computer and install 64 bit on another computer using the same key.
