32-bit/64-bit has nothing to do with it.

The only editions of 7 that do not include the "premium games" (lol) are Starter and Home Basic. From Home Premium upwards they all have them.

Hello kenvar,

Just a bit of FYI to understand the issues with 32-bit and 64-bit OS upgrades and later options that may or may not be available to you later:
When upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 you must upgrade the version currently installed within Windows Vista to the corresponding version in Windows 7. I.E. Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium; Windows Vista Business to Windows 7 Professional; and Windows Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate. You also cannot upgrade a 32-bit operating system to 64-bit -- to migrate from 32-bit to 64-bit will require a custom install.

Additionally, you will not be able to "upgrade" from a 32-bit version of Windows 7 to 64-bit -- the architecture between the two is too drastically different to allow such a change. To learn more about the differences between a 32-bit operating system and 64-bit please go to the following link: http://bit.ly/2aT3xP
I hope that helps you out!

Strange... I think I've seen this post quite a few times... Probably just a coincidence... :rolleyes:

Thanks for the advice. I'm looking to buy a Toshiba Satelite Pro, L450 -EZ1510. It comes with Windows 7 Home Premium - 32 bit, I love the Microsoft Chess Titans game (also spider solitaire) and I was worried that they would not be on the 32 bit version of home premium
