    Error when trying to install platform sdk

    When I try to run the exe file for installing the windows PSDK I get an error that it is not a valid win32 app, I'm instally the amd64 version because that is what I'm running on, anyone have any solutions to this?
    Sometimes I forget what I am doing when I enter a room, actually, quite often.

    You are not, by any chance, running a 32-bit OS on your AMD64 machine? If you are using a 32-bit OS, you need the 32-bit SDK, and the 64-bit SDK would probably be a 64-bit executable, unable to run on a 32-bit machine.

    A typical case of "it's the simple things that rip us up" :-)
