    You will likely need to install 6.2.6 on your 64 bit machine, restore the DB from the 32 bit machine onto the 64 bit machine, then upgrade Spectrum Protect to the desired version, preferably 7.1 or 8.1 as 6.3 is out of support now.

    THe 6.3 server code base is still under support until September of 2017. Only the 6.3 clients are EOL.

    I was able to restore the DB 6.2.6 on a 64 bit box and upgrade to 7.1.7 successfully. Thanks for you assistance.
