Hi
Could I ask what function displays the message "Error: -1633 This installation package is not supported by this processor type"

While installing 32 bit files on a 32 bit machine using a Template Summary "x64;1033" or "AMD64;1033" or "Intel64;1033" I'm seeing this issue as my project contains 32 and 64 bits files even tho I'm not installing the 64 bit files.

It means that Windows Installer on a 32-bit system will not install a package that is marked as a 64-bit package. For an alternate take on this, see Heath Stewart's blog article: Different Packages are Required for Different Processor Architectures (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/heaths/archive/2008/01/15/different-packages-are-required-for-different-processor-architectures.aspx).
