I have Windows XP Pro 64bit SP2 and I want to get Windows 7 when it is released. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta is supposed to tell you if your system is ready for Windows 7.

I also have NET 2.0 Framework or higher running

So I download it to my desktop and open it to install this pop up comes:

You need Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista or Windows 7 to install Windows 7 Upgrade Avisor Beta.
> I click ok

Now another page pops up:

The installer was interrupted before Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta could be installed. To try again, restart the installer.

Everytime I try to install it same message.

What do I do?

Why were you worried that you couldnt run 7? It uses less power than Vista. You made it sound like you had an older low spec PC. Windows 7 should run very well!

If you are in europe you will need to do a clean install - boot from CD and reformat HDD etc. But if you arnt you can do an upgrade.
If your software works in Vista as a rule of thumb it should work with windows 7. Check the manufacturers website for your sound and gfx card drivers - most sites have produced a windows 7 driver.
