Windows 7: Windows XP Mode Install Error

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Windows XP Mode Install Error

I have Windows Professional 64 bit. I downloaded the Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC today, but neglected to install or save Windows XP Mode. Now, it is not installed on my PC; although it is found in the Start menu, when I click on it, I receive a window that says I need to download the setup file. When I try to do this again, it does not download. What can I do to install the XP Mode on my PC now? Thanks
