I installed Windows 7 32 bit (accidentally). I am now trying to install 64 bit (from download) and after unpacking I get the error that the program doesn't have permissions to modify the destination folder or something like that. Any ideas?

I also tried to burrow down into the unpacked folder and run the 'setup' but it told me I was trying to install the 64-bit version over the 32 bit version, but I thought I was doing a 'clean install' and not an upgrade...
