If you still don't understand, x64 Windows won't run 16-bit programs.
edit the install script in steam folder, and remove the dx and other bs etc...., done it before then steam tries to install old junk

after "decryption" there should be a file

installscript.vdf

in the file towards bottom should be something along these lines.

{
"DXSetup"
{
"HasRunKey" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\ 15100"
"process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\DirectX\\DXSETUP.exe"
"command 1" "/silent"
"NoCleanUp" "1"
}
"DetectionTool"
{
"HasRunKey" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\ 15100"
"process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\Detection\\Detection.exe"
"ignoreexitcode" "1"
"NoCleanUp" "1"
}
"RegistrationReminder"
{
"HasRunKey" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\ 15100"
"process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\Register\\RegistrationReminder. exe"
"ignoreexitcode" "1"
"NoCleanUp" "1"
}
}
when removing it, make sure you keep the proper closing tags }
