Trying to install gtk-dev-2.10.11-win32-1.exe on my XP SP2 system results in the error message below. E: holds the XP OS

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
E:\DOCUME~1\76667\Desktop\GRAMPS~1\2\GTK-DE~1.EXE
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:0729 IP:02bd OP:63 6f 6e 74 65 Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
[ Close ] [ Ignore ]

Running after a fresh reboot has not helped. I have a number of other GTK apps running fine, but need this version to run GRAMPS on windows (http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Windows_installer)
