*generally* the script should run, but there may be some OS specific issues (eg: UAC, different file paths) that you'll have to deal with. Use path variables where possible, and the following Macros:

@OSVersion

@ProcessorArch

Will tell you what OS if you need to handle different cases

You can compile 64bit AutoIt on a 32bit machine, if that was the question. It just changes the interpreter binary blob that gets packaged into the file.
