    I installed HTC Sync - no problem, when i am trying to install RUU_Bravo i get error message "not valid win32 application". I am on Windows 7 32bit.
    I tryed on my other laptop which is XP first time RUU_Bravo run OK, after same error message " not valid win32 application "

    Thanks

    Not really. Try it from fast boot screen with HTC sync closed

    When i debranded my phone using gold card & ruu file, i never had htc sync running you just needed the drivers from it installed on your pc.
    All you should have to do is click on the ruu file & make sure it picks the phone as the install destination, you may find that you have to right click & select run as admin.

    i've tried everything, run as admin, in xp mode, my pc will not run RUU.
    Both pc XP and W7 just won't run RUU, tells me "not valid win32 application".

    Maybe the ruu was corrupted during download. Have you tried re-downloading it? Did you get it from shippedroms.com? Apparently their downloads aren't the greatest in reliability.

    Sayong that I don't know anywhere else to get them,

    I don't think there is anywhere else other than shipped roms.
    I am using win 7 X64 so it should work on yours too.
