Symantec 32 bit deploy to Windows 7 64 bit client

This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have Symantec Corporate Edition deployed on the client workstations in our office.  We recently upgraded one of these workstations to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and would like to reinstall the antivirus software.  Is this version of Symantec compatible with Windows 7 64 bit?  Can we run it in compatibility mode (Windows 7 website advises against running AV in compatibility mode)?
