Apache wont install on Windows Web Server 2008 R2 64bit

Hi
I need to install apache and tomcat on the windows web server 2008 r2 64bit server

 I have download the msi package for apache httpd-2.2.17-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8o.msi, which installs ok on windows server standard 2008 64bit but wont even run on the web server 64bit version.

I appreciate this is a 32 bit install package for apache but the same package runs on the windows 2008 64 bit standard server.  

I have never used windows web server 2008 64bit before and was wondering if they is some tweaks I need to make to allow this msi package to install?  Or if anyone has any other ideas(I appreciate as a last resource I can use IIS but was hoping to use apache.

The error I get is  "the installation package could not be opened.  Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer."

Event log:
SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99
   0x80041003
Event ID = 10
Source WMI

Basically in brief how do I install apache on windows web server 2008 r2 64bit.

Thanks again

Have you tried redownloading the installer?
The error sounds like a corrupted file problem.
Apart from that, you can try running as administrator, running from an elevated prompt...

Will try redownloading but already used this package to install on another windows 2008 server.  

Will download again and try elevated priviledges with the new download, although I have tried running as "..." already

Ok, do try it and do post back.
I assume the server is up-to-date, right?
