I have used "force" with no problems so far. You can use
32-bit software on a 64-bit machine, but not the other way
round. The 32-bit software won't run as fast or as efficiently
as 64-bit software.
Similarly, you can pour 1/2 gallon of water into a 1 gallon
bucket, but you cannot pour 2 gallons of water into a 1 gallon
bucket and expect it to hold it all.
That is just a fact of life.
