anyone get past error setup.exe invalid win32 app?
I found a couple of threads on this isssue but seems no one has found a solution of the setup.exe being an invalied win32 application. I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

I already tried running it in different compatibility modes with the same error.

I thought of running windows xp virtual PC and installing it there, but if it worked then it would be using a virtual graphics display driver and I do not think the game would work great under that, if at all.

Has anyone with this problem found a solution?

win rar
Try unzipping the file using winrar (64bit) ver. i had the same problem but used winrar and the exe file is now a Startrek icon. Hope this helps

I had the same exact issue. I googled and downloaded "7 zip", then extracted the file with that program. I was able to install the game and was playing 10 minutes later.
