Thanks a lot for replying Benjamin, I thought I would never get an

As for the specifications, I have a 32 bit version of Windows 2003
home server edition running on AMD 64 processor. I have till now
installed a lot of language distributions on my machine (Erlang, Ruby,
Python, Haskell, Ocaml) but never faced any problem so I have no idea
why Dr. Scheme would not work for the same. Plus the error message
somehow has the feel that it is not related to OS or CPU architecture
in any way.

I am trying to read How to design programs and they recommend using
PLT scheme since it has scheme and many more things (eg. HTTP Server,
graphics etc.). If this is an issue, won't the creators of Dr. Scheme
do anything about it i.e. is there no solution?

Thanks again for your time and effort.
