Installing ACT! 6 on XP Virtual on a W 7 PC

We have ACT! 6 on our system with  a 6 user licence. The data etc is held on the server. The program started to play up on my PC, showing data that did not show on other PCs. I have deleted ACT! 6 from my PC. I have downloaded a copy of the Installation CD from a German company. I have downloaded and installed a virtual XP OS from Microsoft. However it still will not install. When I double click on the install.exe file it gives an error message. The error message says it is not a 32 bit file. Any clues, anyone?

Re: Installing ACT! 6 on XP Virtual on a W 7 PC

I need to have an installation of ACT! 6 for reference as part of my business. I have an XP virtual machine setup on Windows 7 and I've had no trouble with it. However I use the VMware virtual machine rather than the one from Microsoft because of poor experience with the Microsoft one.
