Try another download - it may have corrupted.

I'm sure someone will correct me on this if I'm wrong but I thought the powertoys didn't work on XP hence the error message.

You need a different Tweakui for Win XP than that required for Win 98. The XP version is here: click here

Are you sure you downloaded the correct TweakUI. The one you want is 147 KByte.

The 64-bit one is Tweak UI for Itaniumâ„¢-based systems and is 224 KByte - you do NOT want this one.

You have to download the correct file for XP. It does work if you get the correct one.
