Windows XP Mode wont work.

I have a Dell Latitude D530 with an Intel Core 2 Duo (x86) and 2.00 gigs of ram. I recently upgraded from windows xp to 7 Ultimate and I have some software that requires windows xp mode. I installed Windows Virtual PC like normal with no errors. I then go to install windows xp mode and I get this error: Attachment 295162

If anyone can fix this, please tell me.

Windows XP Mode installs as an application, the Windows Virtual PC as a Windows Update, so that message is coming from Virtual PC which can't install.

Most common reason for this error is the wrong bit version. Restore your system to an earlier point before downloading and installing VPC and XP Mode, then try to reinstall following instructions in this tutorial exactly as written: Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup
