Windows 7: Version of this file is not compatible with the the version of windows

Version of this file is not compatible with the the version of windows

I'm trying to install some applications on a Lenovo ideapad with windows 7 home premium, 64-bit, SP1. I'm getting the following error - "The version of this file is not compatible with the the version of windows you're running." I've installed all of these specific applications (e.g. RealPlayer, Logmein, Windows 2007 Compatibility Pck File Format Converter) and many other 32-bit apps on other Windows 7 64-bit machines, including 2 other Lenovo laptops with the exact same specs, purchased at the same time, with absolutely no issue.

I thought maybe it was some kind of virus so I reformattted the laptop and I'm still getting the same issue. It's VERY frustrating. I've searched everywhere and don't see any answers. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or how to correct it?

Hey Ztrucker,

I was trying install apps like RealPlayer, Logmein, Windows 2007 Compatibility Pack File Format Converter and some proprietary executables. I got frustrated and reformatted again and that seemed to do it. Thanks for looking though!
