so i have been on my mac onto the boot camp assistant and downloaded onto my usb the drivers for windows 7 setup. and when i go onto my windows 7 and try and open it it says: "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher". our windows 7 is upto date and the usb i am using is formatted to: FAT.. so i don't know what to do?

You download drivers from Boot Camp Assistant. Look there.
In the past the drivers were all on your DVD from OS X and would copy them to Desktop in Windows.
Back then, the folder was inside something like Apple \ Drivers \ .... \ Bootcamp64.msi
You can still search Explorer for "Bootcamp64" as well as search these forums.
Others have done same.
