Unsupported 16-bit application

I tried to download shaiya to my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C675, Windows 7). pop-up says "program or feature cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows." What should i do now?

The error message is actually a bit misleading.

What it really means is "I don't recognise this as a valid program. The most likely cause is a corrupt download but I'll pretend the file is for a previous version of Windows anyway."

Download the installer again and re-try the install.

check if you can run it without problems through compatibility modus. Just rightclick the shortcut, select "properties", go to the "compatibility" tab and select 32bit.

Normally, shaiya runs fine on a 64 bit version, but if this problem got solved with this trick, you can spare time with redownloading and installing Smile
