You don't need to uninstall Winzip, I have both it and 7-zip installed on this computer. The 32-bit version of 7-zip will work on all computers.  If you download the 'msi' version, it will allow Windows to uninstall it if you need to later.

I use WinZip 64-bit and you can use 7-Zip 64-bit. Both should work, but use the 64-bit version.

A quick and dirty way to check is to write a script (or check for yourself) for the existence  the "C:\Programs Files (x86)" folder. If the system has a "C:\Programs Files (x86)" folder use the 64-Bit installer. Otherwise use the 32-Bit installer.
BTW, the 32-bit should work on both 64 and 32 bit systems.

No, I meant the 32-bit 'msi' version.  But looking at the download page, all I see is an 'exe' version so use that.
