    What's with the single thumb? I answered your question. It won't work on XP because it's not a supported operating system. You can try running it by using the method.

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

pcjanitor.jpg
If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.


Error: x64.exe not a valid Win32 application This article applies to:
  • Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003
  • Browser(s): Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla 1.4+
  • Java version(s): 6.0
SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'


CAUSE

The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system.
SOLUTION

User needs to install a 32-bit version of Java software, since a 64-bit version is not compatible with their 32-bit operating system.

Follow these steps to download 32-bit Java
  1. Go to Manual download
  2. Click Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008 Online.
  3. The File Download dialog box appears.
  4. Choose the folder location.
  5. (Save the file to a known location on your computer, for example, to your desktop).
  6. Click Save.
  7. Close all applications including the browser.
  8. Double-click on the saved file icon to start the installation process.

It says exe is not a valid win32 Application


This usually means you are trying to double click on something that will not work in whatever version of Windows you are using. It could be written for an older version of Windows, such as you're using Vista and the program was written for Win98. Or it could be something else, such as you're running a 32 bit version of XP and the exe file is for a 64 bit version. Either way, it isn't going to work.

Ntvdm cpu encountered illegal operation Hi all! I just installed Maya 2010 from a torrent file and since then I got this famous error message. It's just appeears as three command prompts appearing at the...


If I am reading this right your issue is not the application but where you obtained the application. Maya 2010 is a modern design application and comes in 32 & 64 bit versions. It is not a 16 bit application.

When Windows encounters a legacy application it calls the NTVDM for the legacy application to run in.

The fact that the application is calling the NTVDM is highly suspicious. NTVDM is the NT Virtual Dos Machine, a way for legacy applications to run in NT environments.

NT environments are Windows NT 3.5, NT 4.0, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP (Home, Pro & Media Center Ed), Vista (all versions) and Windows 7.

Old (legacy) applications written for 16 bit date back to Windows 3.1 and include Windows 95, 98 and Millennium Edition.

I would obtain a copy of Maya 2010 from a reputable outlet instead of Bit Torrent as "warez" frequently contain malicious items that will infect and ruin your machine.

1. It's the main problem with Vista! It don't support applications / softwares which are 16-bit (Only 32-bit applications are supported!).

2. It hardly support any application older than Windows XP (which runs on Windows 95/98/NT/Me)!

3. Try to download the updated version of your applications from internet which are Windows Vista compatible.

4. Then install these updated versions.

tell me if it don't works...tc! :)

I downloaded a software package to my windows XP desktop but, when I try to install I get a pop up stating location Doc. and settings not valid in win32 application. Please advise.


Sounds like the download got corrupted. Try Deleting the current copy and re-downloading. If it still does not work, verify that you have downloaded the 32 bit version of the software if there is a 32 and 64 bit versions available.

The ntvdm cpu has encountered an illegal instruction


I took this from another web site:
Michael Chiew said:
What did you do before this happened? What were your last deeds on the machine before the pop-up appeared?

I think what you're referring to is NTVDM CPU, not NTDVM CPU. Am I correct?

What do you know about 16-bit and 32-bit applications? Well, 16-bit applications are those that must work within the DOS (Disk Operating System) environment, a real-mode arena. NTVDM stands for NT Virtual Dos Machine.

In Windows XP, as in Windows 2000, or Windows 98, there are 16-bit and 32-bit environments (real mode and protected mode respectively).

Windows XP can only operate in 32-bit mode. All 16-bit applications must work within its own theatre of operation, typically, the first MB of physical memory (ram). Conversely, 32-bit applications must function above the first MB memory line. If either of these applications happens to slip into "alien" territory, you get an error message like "something" has encounter an illegal instruction. In other words, the wayward application is trying to slip by the immigration checkpoint.

In your case, updatemgr.exe (I suspect updatemgr.exe is a 32-bit application) has in all likelihood wondered into the 16-bit arena. Hence, NTVDM CPU issues that warning. 

Why do you continue to get the message. It's because updatemgr.exe incessantly misbehaves itself on start-up, always trying to load itself into a particular memory address where it is not welcome. Why the persistence? Updatemgr.exe has gone bonkers. It is either corrupted or damaged.

On the other hand, one cannot discount the possibility that NTVDM (NTVDM.EXE) is corrupted or damaged. So your problem lies with either updatemgr.exe or NTVDM.EXE, or both.

There are 2 things you could do.

First, establish who owns updatemgr.exe, Microsoft or some third-party owner. Second, rename updatemgr.exe and see whether the message goes away.

To establish ownership (and the function of updatemgr.exe), do a search for the file. 

Click START, select FIND. In the FIND dialog box, type: updatemgr.exe. See the directory in which the file has lodged. In Windows Explorer, get to the file, right-click on it, select PROPERTIES. Who owns it? Is there an indication of its function.

Next, rename the file. Right-click it, select RENAME and rename it to, say, updatemgr.old. RESTART your computer. Do you still get the error message. Not likely.

To clean things up a bit, perhaps it is a good idea for you to replace the current NTVDM.EXE with a new copy. Find out where NTVDM.EXE is. Then, click START, select RUN. Type in the RUN dialog box SFC to run the System File Checker. Insert your OS CD, follow the prompts, extract a copy of NTVDM.EXE and send it to its place of residence. Of course, you should also replace a copy of updatemgr.exe.

That should eliminate your problem for good.

Problem to set up java with windows vista


there is a possibility that the file was not downloaded properly, so try downloading it again fully and retry installing.

Make sure that you have the matching bit version. If your windows is a 32 bit version one,, make sure you din download the windows x64 package of java ..

You downloaded the wrong version. You have 32 bit windows (note the "valid win32 application" part?). You need to download the regular 32 bit version, not the 64bit version. The update file for 32bit windows is file that is 4.9MB in size listed on that web site. Please don't forget to rank my answer, thanks :) Peter
