Railroad Tycoon 2 on Windows 7 error - setup.exe cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows

I am trying to play the game "Railroad Tycoon 2- Gold edition" on my laptop which runs Windows 7. Every time I try to install it, it keeps saying - " The program or feature \??\G:\_setup\setup.exe cannot start or run due to incompatibility with  64-bit versions of Windows"  ......and there is nothing i can seem to do to go around this at all.  Normally with my older games I can at least install them, then just change then setting to be compatible and what not but i can't here. Any help would be great as I would love to play this game, it is one of my favorites and I hate how I can't play it just because computers are better than they were.....if that is so then they should still be able to support games that are 10+ years older than them you know? I can add more info if needed, thanks.

You would need to contact the manufacturer to see if they have a patch for Windows 7. It would come from the manufactuer and not from Microsoft.
