Nortel Networks Extranet Access Client installing in a 64 Bit Windows Environment

I cannot get the Nortel Networks Extranet Access Client to install on Windows XP 64 Bit Edition.  The latest info I could find on this site on this
topic was dated in the late part of last year.  Question is two parts:  Is there a newer version that allows the intsall in a 64 bit environment?
And: If not, can the install package be altered (maybe something like the ORCA editor) so it will install?

No, sorry, it's a corporate download.  They haven't done any testing with 64bit.

When i try this version, the error I get is:  Failed to load the driver.

last statement would still stand    32 bit sw is not compatible with 64bit windows unless it has been rewritten for it
