Windows 7: setup issue of 32 bit game in 64 bit system

setup issue of 32 bit game in 64 bit system

hello! I am looking for a solution in installing PC game - Prototype-Razor 1911 from an ISO file.While installling the game by clicking 'prototypef.exe' the installation stalls saying about the incompatibility due to 32 bit game and 64 bit system. The captured image is in the attachment.
I have downloaded this game from RS.Since I am able to create ISO file, the file is complete. I request the members to help me to solve this issue. I have been under the impression that 64 bit OS is backward compatible and this Game is of the present year,2009, yet such issue? Looking forward for enlightenment!
Thankyou!

Uhh, you know downloading that is illegal right? If i were to download a game from say pirate bay, i wouldnt ask help on a legit forum -.-
Well anyway, Rightclick it, select run as admin and the compa mode to Win XP service pack 3

And BTW, its not a 64-bit game. Its newer than your pants.

I actually have the same problem with the game of life, (legal copy :P) it wont install on my 64 bit system and get the same popup. Kids loved playing the game wish it worked.

Urbwolf this the version you have,

The Game of Life - PC game

If so I would say based on the age of the game it is using a 16 bit installer. Doesn't mean the game is 16 bit just the installer, which means it will never install on 64 bit Win 7. One thing you can try if your Windows is Pro or up is to use XP Mode to install the game to the hard drive (and not the virtual drive inside XP), and then make a shortcut for it on the desktop.
