If you have the Profession edition or higher, you can create a virtual XP machine: Download Windows XP Mode
I am "Home premium", it is not a profession edition.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

technically this is probably not a 32/64 bit issue. The installer was written to specify a specific verion (or versions) of windows and is failing because it's never heard of Windows 7. Even though it's entirely possible the program would run fine.

Typically selecting compatibility mode for the OS it was originally written for is all that's needed to fix it.

Since that didn;t work, your only option left may be to install virtual PC or virtual box and install XM in that and run the program there. Virtual Box kicks butt
