Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.
I'm sorry about the issue. You cannot run any program from external without reinstalling the program.
I'm not sure what you mean with "t run any of the 64-bit computers"?

If I connect an external SSD containing installed Win 7 pro 32-bit OS to 64-bit computers using a USB 3 connection, will the 64-bit computers boot up with the 32-bit OS? Will I be able to run programmes that only operate within the 32-bit environment?
Sorry, it won't boot with with the 32-bit OS if you connect it via USB connection; you have to connect it internally.
You mean that if I replace the original HDD connection with the SSD containing the 32-bit OS, the 64-bit computer with then accept and run the 32-bit OS?
No, the computer model has to be the same or similar
Is there something wrong with the old computer that you need to switch to a new computer?
Nothing wrong. The old computer is a PC. The laptop I have for presentations when I travel is a 64-bit, so I was looking for ways to show the old 32-bit programmes on the 64-bit unit.
Thanks! XXXXX use the XP mode if I have to, But it's no as good as a straight 32-bit configuration, and win 8 doesn't like it much...
You're welcome. I see; you can try some solutions:1. There is the remote program called TeamViewer you can install and setup for remote connection display the PC's screen on the laptop:http://www.teamviewer.com/
Install TeamViewer program on both computers.
For only the PC, do this step: in the TeamViewer program, click on the Connection menu, then Setup unattended access..., and continue there.
Solution #1 is best / easiest. You do need reliable / high-speed internet connection.
2. See if you can install any of your 32-bit programs on the 64-bit windows laptop.3. On the windows 64-bit laptop, click on Start, then right-click on Computer, then click on Properties, then check if you have windows 7 edition: Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate. If yes, then use windows xp mode program:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/install-and-use-windows-xp-mode-in-windows-74. Buy and install windows 7 32-bit on laptop.Thank you
