64bit Live installed to 32bit of PC, possible?

Dear Live users;

I've tried to search for similar question but somehow couldn't find it.
Is it possible to use 64bit version of Live in a 32bit of PC?

Question #2, if I plan to change my PC, can my Live be installed for the second time in another PC?

Thank you in advance

    No, you can not run a 64-bit version of software on a 32-bit computer. Also, there is no reason why you would want to. 

    It is also no problem to have Live installed and authorized on two computer at the same time, as long as you are not planning on using them simultaneously.

    In the Windows-PC-World it is not possible to run 64bit processes (i.e. Ableton Live 64bit) on a 32bit kernel.

    On a Mac this is different. The 32bit Mach-kernel is either able to run 64bit processes (i.e. Ableton Live 64bit) and able to use more than 4GB memory.

    I know that if you install Live on one computer and authorize it, and then on a second computer and authorize it, you will definitely void the authorization of the first computer, but I am not sure if that will happen automatically or if you will have to connect the first computer to the internet for it to update. I am just not sure because I have never tried it.

    However, this webpage may dispel some other doubts you are having:

    As far as your first question, I have never tried it, but a trusty friend of mine has claimed to have run Ableton Live 9 Suite 64 bit in his 32 bit operating system. (snow leopard) However, he is running Snow Leopard 10.8.4 or 5 I think and he also now boots into 64 bit mode. Which is an available option for those people with updated firmware as outlined here:

    Ableton will probably be best suited to answer this question since they have probably tested on many a computer even before their official release.
