I cannot install 32 bit SolidWorks on my 64 bit computer!

Due to architecture changes in the 64 bit window 7 machines, you are no longer able to install 32 bit SolidWorks on a 64 bit machine.  The installation manager will not allow you to even attempt the install.

Installation manager 32bit

This is only possible with Windows XP Professional x64 Edition operating system. The 32-bit version of SolidWorks cannot be installed on the 64-bit versions of Vista or Windows 7; the 32-bit Installation Manager blocks the ability to do so with these versions.

These rules apply to all SolidWorks releases.
