Windows Live not win32 application and error code 0x80072f76

I am currently using Windows XP Professional SP3, and when I download the latest Windows Live messenger (I don't like the MSN messenger) and try to install it, i get "not a win32 application". So I attempted to install an older version of it, from the cnet downloads and half way through the installation I got the error code: 0x80072f76 Can anyone help me with this? Thank you.
