It appears you are attempting to run the install from within Windows and that cannot work. There is no upgrade path from a 32 bit to 64 bit OS so you must do a clean install of the OS and all applications. You would have to set the BIOS to boot from the install DVD and boot from it.

Yep, you have to boot from the dvd in the dvd tray and do a clean install.
