Hello,
I've a Windows 7 OS and is configured to 64 bit. See status below:

C:\Users\Ratish>echo %programfiles% C:\Program Files

So, I think my OS is running in 64 bit mode itself. I also checked the system configuration and it said 64 bit.

But, when I try installing any application with x64 mode, it does not install and throws a message saying this is Win32 m/c. So, though my OS is in 64 bit, it allows only 32 bit applications to work. Any idea how resolve this?

if you dont have program files (x86) then it means your running 32 bit

Go to Control Panel/System. Under System (middle of window), does System Type say 64-bit or 32-bit Operating System?

What program are you trying to install?
And has the OS been upgraded from and earlier version to Win7? or is it a clean install?

Trying to install Java Develop Kit for 64 bit version and Eclipse IDE too. Both says : it is not a valid Win32 application.
I've not upgraded to any version. This is Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1.
