I have the workshop manual for my car on a CD, but it is based on a 32bit system. Both my computers are based on 64bit windows 7. I am told that it will work on win 7

Most do, a few don't. Only way is to attempt to install it.

*"Can I run 32-bit programs on a 64-bit computer?
Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs."*
