Hello,

please tell me how can i solve these problem
best regards

Re: Windows 7 Setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application

It Seem to a memory problem. You need at least 2 GB for the 64 bit . and for the 32, it requires only 1GB

Minimum System Requirements


Seven Windows 32 bit Processor 1 Ghz minimum
  • Ram 1 GB
  • Occupation of hard disk 16 GB
  • Graphics Card Compatible with DirectX 9

Seven Windows 64 bit Processor 1 Ghz minimum
  1. Ram 2 GB
  2. Occupation of hard disk 20 GB
  3. Graphics Card Compatible with DirectX 9

Re: Windows 7 Setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application

you are sure, I have a big doubt for the memory size ,For the 64-bit version, I think you must have a 64-bit processor, and I'm not sure in this case.
Minimum system requirements to run Windows 7:
  • 1 GHz processor, 1 GB (32 bit) or 2 GB (64 bits) of RAM, at least 16 GB of disk space to install the 32-bit (20 GB for 64-bit declination), and a circuit DirectX 9 compatible graphics.
  • 1 GHZ Processor
  • 1 GB of RAM (or 2 GB on Windows 7 64-bit)
  • 16 GB of disk space (and 20 go to the declination 64 seven-bit Windows)
  • A compatible graphics card DirectX 9

It can therefore easily be concluded, that Windows seven will works "properly" on any configuration of 2009, including NETBOOK.

Re: Windows 7 Setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application

These are the recommended sizes, no minimum size. I Has been running windows 7 Seven with 512 MB without any problems Also With Memory size of 1 GB I have installed Windows 7 64-bit (as well as Vista SP2 64 bits) on my laptop, it does not cause any problem

To check the integrity of protected system files, run the following command:
sfc / scannow

If the error occurs at the opening of files, click Start / Run, then enter and confirm the following command:
regsvr32 / i SHELL32.DLL

If the application in question was uploaded to the Internet, it is possible that it was corrupted during download. In which case just download the file again.
