I'm going to install Microsoft Security Essentials on my spare computer and I'm running XP-x64 edition

but I'm getting this following error code when trying to install it:

0x8004FF2E

Am I missing something here?

Thanks

Rob

Have you removed any other Anti-virus programs that you had installed.

It was a clean install, I had it on my flash drove and tried that, and also tried other versions no go.

Or this from another Forum.

You cannot install the 32 bit version on a 64 bit OS.
MSE can be installed on Vista or Windows 7 64 bit with the 64 bit version.
XP 64 bit is not supported.
