If you are on XP chances are you have a 32-bit operating system., The program you are trying to run is a 64-bit program (x64) and therefore is not a valid 32-bit program. Find the 32-bit version download and install that.

Choose the Windows x86 version which, oddly enough, is NOT an 86-bit version, but the 32-bit version you need.
