I can't afford to upgrade to Win 7 64 bit for a month or two...Is this update to V7 going to cause Me any problems with Win XP 32 bit other than needing to upgrade My nVidia Drivers after My work runs out and gets reported?
I only have this one box still running XP.

I have 8 out of 9 rigs on XP, 2 are 64 bit.
No problems here.
I am not sure about the minimum driver limits needed for the various app versions.

No problem at all.

I just took one out of service that was running "Home Edition" but I have at least three still running XP Pro with no trouble.
