Windows 7: A program WinBeam not running anymore

A program WinBeam not running anymore

On my Vista 32bit i had a program running ok. It's called WinBeam and it's very small - 1MB. It's an old program and it doesn't have new versions or support. After I upgraded to 7 64bit I can't install it.I get the error below. I tried to run the setup file in compatibility mode but I get this error again. I'm sure that there isn't any missing file, cuz that's the same archive I've used before.
I've heard that there's an XP mode in Seven but I don't know how to use it. Do you think it will help? I'm not sure if the problem is either the Seven or the 64bit OS. The program is kind of important so I would be very grateful to anyone who can help me

If its old, probably not compatible with 64 bit.

Redownload the app - the installer looks corrupt. The .exe package should include all files, unless the language files are separate.

Well... As I said - I've installed and run this program under Vista 32bit with no problems. The same archive. And just to make sure I downloaded it again and the same error appeared.
richc46 what should I do with this link. I couldn't understand
I see that it probably is not compatible with x64 but isn't there any way to run it?

If its 16-bit you may have issues.

Im sorry, you said that it was old. You may not be able to run it. Can you tell us if it is 16 or 32 bit?

Sorry but I don't know. Here it is. Maybe you can check and see yourself? Actually I think there might be newer version but I don't believe that it will be much different. I can't find anywhere to download it though.

Basically it's a simple program that calculates the forces, moments and reactions that acts on different kind of beams under different circumstances. It's too bad it cannot work under 64bit. That's a program that my teacher gave the class and explained how to use. We haven't started working with it but soon we will. I guess I should ask him for alternatives.

Talk to the teacher, I am sure he is familiar with the changing technology. I am sure that he has alternatives. Other students will probably experience the same problem, if they have not already.
