The message that you are getting that says "GeoDBSetup.exe is not a valid Win32 application" is probably because:

    1. Your download of the LegacyGeoDBSetup.exe file was incomplete or corrupted.
    2. Or, hardware incompatibility (not as likely, but a possibility).

• If the GeoDBSetup.exe file is corrupt, incomplete or missing, Windows will be unable to execute the file and may generate this error message, or other messages.

    1. Please download and save the LegacyGeoDBSetup.exe file to your Desktop by downloading from our alternate site: Geo Database Installer - from Alternate Server  (67 MB).

    2. Next, reboot your computer in Safe Mode; then logon to your computer as Administrator and install Legacy using the saved LegacyGeoDBSetup.exe.

    3. Temporarily disable your Internet security (firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-adware, popup blockers, etc.) as these programs can sometimes remove critical system files from Legacy.

    4. We recommend that you use Internet Explorer to download.

• Installing the Geo Location Database from a CD:

    1. If you're attempting to install the Geo Location Database and are getting the Win 32 error, verify that the CD is clean. If the CD is dirty, scratched or bad, you could get this error during the install and/or get this error after the program has been installed because it was not copied properly onto the computer.

    2. If you're still getting this error after carefully cleaning the CD, it's also possible that the CD-ROM drive or the drive you're installing the program from is not compatible with Windows or has drivers that are not compatible with Windows.

    3. Download the latest drivers for your CD drive from the manufacturer's Web site.
