Can Windows 10 64-bit open PDF files made on a 32-bit Windows 7 computer?

If it has a 32 bit CPU, then no. If it has a 64 bit CPU but some 32 bit peripherals, you may have mixed results. Any form of virtualisation that supports running on a 32 bit CPU will cripple performance. You can run 64 bit virtual under a 32 bit hypervisor (why?) on a 64 bit machine if the hardware virtualisation supports 64 bit. You can RDP to a 64 bit VM from a 32 bit OS on a 32 bit computer as well. I can RDP using Remmina from 32 bit PeppermintOS on a 32 bit Pentium M EeePC 701 to a 64 bit Azure desktop in 800x480. Smooth as butter. Not practical.

Alter PDF: All You Need to Know

If System Type value includes ‖amd64”, the CPU is 32-bit. If System Type value includes ‖ia64”, the CPU is 64-bit. Therefore, if the System Type for your Computer says ‗x86‾ you should be looking at a CPU architecture which has x86 processors. If the System Type value indicates ‖x64‾ you should be looking at a CPU architecture which has x64 processors. On a Windows 8 or 8.1 Computer, the System Type option will appear as either ‗x86‾ or ‗x64‾. So you can check what CPU architecture your computer is running as follows: Select Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Change PC settings. The PC settings > Advanced tab will be visible. Look for the CPU Type column. (See Figures 6-5) This is the CPU architecture we are looking for. Figure 6-5. CPU type for 32-bit Computer. If your CPU type says “32bit” then you should be.
