No, there isn't. In fact, it's simply not technically possible to do
what you want.
There is no supported upgrade path from any 32-bit OS to any 64-bit OS.
You have to perform a clean installation, which entails deleting the
partition and creating and formatting a new partition (Although some
people merely format the old partition and start from there) before
installing the new OS, which obviously means that any and all installed
applications will need to be reinstalled from the original installation

The Windows Easy Transfer Wizard can walk you through transferring your
data files and many application settings from one installation to another.
