Windows 7: Windows Virtual PC: "The update is not applicable to your computer"

Windows Virtual PC: "The update is not applicable to your computer"

I am wanting to install Windows Virtual PC on my computer, but whenever I run the installation file (which is the correct 64-bit version for my computer), it first searches for the update then another window pops up saying that this update is not applicable to my computer (as read in the title). I already have Windows XP Mode installed so is that the problem? If not, please tell me what is.
