  1. Mr. You do you have a 64 bit OS?

    Error Message: "Install.exe is not a valid win32 application" or "Setup.exe is not a valid win32 application."

    Translation: This error appears when you attempt to install a program designed to run on older versions of Windows on the new 64-bit version of the operating system.

    Solution: You won't be able to install or run 16-bit applications on the new 64-bit version of WinXP. The solution is to obtain a 32-bit or 64-bit version of the program you are trying to install. In some cases you can obtain a 32-bit installer for the application and then still run the older application, even in 16-bit mode.

  2. to my knowledge my version of windows is 32-bit.
  3. Is your system newly built? Have you had problems loading other software onto the machine?
  4. Newly built last x-mas. The only other problem was MOHAA, which I worked around......
  5. Maybe this will help. Damaged CD disk?
