Adobe InDesign CS 5.5 does not install

I have recently purchased Adobe InDesign CS 5.5 but the install never happens.  I saw on the box that I need a 64 bit processor to install this program and I am pretty sure that I have a 64 bit processor but I do not have a 64 bit OS.  I never get an error message, but I never have any progress beyond this point.

You must have a 64-bit operating system even if your CPU is 64-bit. 64bit will not install on a windows 32bit os but a 32 bit application WILL install on a 64bit OS.

So the 64 bit processor requirement means that I need a 64 bit OS?

If you check out this page, it does not mention a 64 bit requirement.

You might have a 64 bit version. If so, then you need a 64 bit processor and 64 bit O/S.

Hope this helps.

That is correct. Your processor is 64 bit but that only means it can handle a 64bit Operating System. Software that is designed for 64bit is designed to work on the 64 bit OS.

What I see on the box is:
Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon® 64 processor
Microsoft® Windows® XP with Service Pack 2 (Service Pack 3 recommended); Windows Vista® Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise with Service Pack 1; or Windows 7.

It says I need the 64 processor, so logically, I guess, that would mean I need the 64 bit OS.

correct. You only need a 64bit OS if you want to install 64bit applications.
