Windows 7 Student Upgrade edition has troubles

Word has it that the Windows 7 Student Upgrade edition is already running into problems, where a fair number of students have experienced issues when installing the downloadable $29 student upgrade edition on machines that run 32-bit Windows Vista. Apparently, the file doesn’t really unpack in the proper manner, where it ends up as a single executable file alongside a couple of bundles that just don’t work instead of being an OS installer like it should be. Following that, it will attempt to run a 64-bit task on these 32-bit systems. Hopefully this matter will be fixed by Microsoft soonest possible as whiny students could prove to make a whole lot of noise.
