    What to do if I try to open some application in my Windows OS and it says "It is not a valid Win32 application"?

    I recently installed a new software application in my Windows PC but whenever I try to open the .exe file I get and error saying "It is not a valid Win32 application"? What is the problem? Is it a problem with the Software application or with Windows OS? How to fix this issue?

    If your Windows OS is saying "It is not a valid Win32 application".
    Then, it means that application is not compatible with your Windows 32-bit OS.
    You will have to download its 32-bit version (x86), then only that will run in your Windows 32-bit OS.

    Note that Windows 32-bit softwares will run in Windows 32-bit (x86) OS only.
    And, Windows 64-bit softwares will run in Windows 64-bit OS (x64) only.

    your system may be 64-bit operating system. and you may try to install a 32-bit application. however some applications of the 32-bit only supports for 64-bit. some applications didn't support installation to 64-bit.
