Default Opening a 64 bit Outlook Archive on a 32 bit version of Outlook

Hello Everyone;



Recently I installed the 64-bit version of Outlook 2013 on my PC running Windows 7 Pro. Unfortunately I have a program that interfaces with Outlook but no longer runs because it was built on a 32-bit architecture. To solve this, I'm thinking I uninstall the 64-bit version of Outlook, and clean install the 32-bit version (both 2013). I also want to archive my entire Outlook library before uninstalling so I don't lose my emails.

Does anyone know if I'll be able to open the 64-bit archive on the 32-bit version of Outlook? If I can't, I'm thinking I either convert the archived .pst file to a single pdf, or I download software to view the archived .pst file. If you guys have any thoughts of those alternatives let me know as well.

Thanks,

Jon

You cannot run Office (or its applications) in both 64-bit and 32-bit modes on the same system. If you want to run Outlook in 32-bit mode, you'll need to uninstall & reinstall the entire Office suite in 32-bit mode. Your data files in all applications should be unaffected.
