first you have to check your processor type weather it is 32 or 64 .
and then you should download the supported version of sql server .
only then you can able to install it

hi there,

Most probably the installation file you downloaded has become corrupt or wasn't completely downloaded.Try downloading again. And yes do check you are downloading the 32 bit version only if your system is 32bit one.
