    My first thought would be that, since the message suggest that the problem is somehow related to the "current operating system", you might be trying to install a 64 bit application onto a 32 bit version of Windows 7.
    If this is not the case, then perhaps some specifics regarding your laptop, as well as the program you are trying to install on it, might help us further assist you.
    Regards

    Also, could check Firewall Exceptions, that it is listed, check-marked & being passed/allowed.
