  • Hi, our MAK key also activates 64-bit, but it might vary from agreement to agreement. You could always install the 32-bit edition (you don't need to supply the key during setup) and then once installed try and activate it with your 64bit MAK. It will either work or not.

    Or you could contact MS licensing services and confirm with them...

  • Hi, what sort of key so you have? If you have an Enterprise Agreement KMS or MAK key, it will certainly work for either. For example, our KMS Windows 2008 R2 key will activate everything (business editions) from Vista upwards, 32-bit and 64-bit editions.

  • Hi,
    We have a MAK key but our in house software library only has the 32 bit version installer right now. Did not want to have to get (pay for) another license if not needed.
    Thanks
