Im not sure about farcry, but I have Vista Ultimate 64-bit and was playing CS Source without a problem. Steam does not have any problems with vista's 32 bit or 64 bit OS.

vista has a 32 bit emulator so 95% of the time u should have no problems at all
and if there r problems most likely u can ether get an update for the program or a 3rd part emulator

did you see any difference in performance or graphics? i was looking at some screenshots for farcry 32 bit compared to farcry 64bit and there was a noticeable difference in graphics quality such as the draw distance
