    Hi
    Im haveing troubles installing a program on my computer.
    I have a 64bit chip and the program worked with it on XP.
    I now use XP64bit and im getting the following msg when I try to install.

    "The image file C:\DOCUME~1\LOCALS~1\TEMP\IXP000.TMP\Setup.exe is valid, but
    is for a machine type other than the curent machine."

    So as for many installers it has a bit of 16bit code.
    Have tryed all the compatibility modes and cant find any installshield
    settings.

    Help please!!! Is there any code/ file or setting I may need?

    All coments welcome.

  2. You don't say what program, but no 16-bit installer works in x64.

  4. 16bit is simply not supported on x64. Period.
