I think it will depend on the software. I just built a package for software that was captured in a Windows 7 32 bit eviroment and it works on XP as well as Windows 7. If it makes the same file and registry changes it should work.
There really is no absolutely correct Yes or No answer to this one. Sometime is will be fine, others it won't. I'd suggest building to your major OS first and then testing on the secondary to see if it behaves as expected.

Depends on how you are using AS. Is the install an EXE or MSI, does the vendor supply two installs one for X86 and one for X64, are you just using the msi and creating an transform, etc.... I would recommend using a capture as a LAST resort. Packaging is more art than science. Details would help us better help you.
Thank you for the replies to date, here's some additional info:
1. I'm testing this a build deployment for Visio 2007. It's an exe install that I want to change to an msi.
2. My LD environment is v9.0 sp2 and patches 0428 and 0519 applied. The agent is not on the clean build machine.
3. I tried converting using AS on Win7 2 times and so far have had no success. Oddly enough the secont test broke my win 7 clean environment. Looks like the repair session is failing too. Will need to restore from imgage I took of it before I began the AS build.
4. The win 7 environment had (because I'm restoring now) UA 10 sp2 installed.
What I really wanted was for someone to tell me "Yes" one size does fit all. The answers I got were what I expected though. It depends on the application. Too bad, now it looks like, for the most part, I'll have to build twice, once for XP and once for 7.
Thanks for the feedback.
