Yes I am 32-bit. It's the home machine so kids educational stuff and other
software that violates Microsoft guidelines works better if it can assume
"c:\program files" is where things go and is 32-bit. If it was just me I'd
do a 64bit install. :)

Ah interesting, must be you are using a 32bit version of windows 7.  The
64 bit version won't work as NCU, NCK, etc are 16 bit applications and
microsoft removed support for in the 64 bit versions of Vista and 7.
