You don't say what game you are trying to install.
Try going to h**p://www.microsoft.com and in the search box type "not a valid win32 application" without the quotes.
See if there are any answers there.
Hope this helps
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
