Powershell - 32bit and 64bit OS

not much of a coding question but more of a general Powershell portability question.

I am writing some scripts and able to test them on assorted 32bit workstations.  I know there will be some issues with some portions of the code on 64 bit OSs but on average how much rework will be needed?
for the most part I am only using the following classes to poll statuses on remote workstations.

Thanks,
C
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -namespace "root\CIMV2"
get-wmiobject -class "Win32_ComputerSystem" -namespace "root\CIMV2"
get-wmiobject -class "Win32_Processor" -namespace "root\CIMV2"

Get-WmiObject -class Win32_OperatingSystem
Get-WmiObject -class Win32_BIOS -namespace "root\CIMV2"
get-wmiObject Win32_logicaldisk

WMI type stuff should work on 64-bit without problems.  I have a script that does similar WMI related queries to what you're doing and have run them across a range of OSes without issue (XP, 2000, 2003, 2008, 7, 32 bit and 64-bit).
