If AE is not on the list and the creative cloud app then your computer is not compatible with the cc version of a After Effects. Try downloading CS 6.
YOur system doesn't meet the requirements if it doesn't show up. It's as simple as that. Even CS6 may not qualify, but we can't know that since you haven't provided any system info.
I am wondering, how do you know that I haven't provided any system info? I
am very cautious about providing anyone with my system info, but will make
an exception, I am using window 7 and do not plan on changing. I have a
lot of software that has cost me a lot of money and will not run in 64bit.
Is there another way to use new software (like AE) without having to throw
away everything I have?

Because your post didn't contain any useful information.

Why? What could people knowing your OS, RAM, Processor, GPU, etc. possibly harm? It will only help with troubleshooting.

AE runs just fine on Windows 7 if it's 64-bit.
I have a lot of software that has cost me a lot of money and will not run in 64bit.

Yes; dual-boot. You can install two operating systems on one machine. Boot into one when you want to use modern software and boot into the other when you want to use old software.
Are you absolutely sure your old software won't run in Windows 7 64-bit in compatibility mode?
Thank you for your time responding to my question. In my experience with
the computer I have found many good things, however there are many programs
and people with bad intent. I have formatted my system and installed clean
OS more times than I can count. Szalam
<https://forums.adobe.com/people/Szalam> I once again thank you, and pose
this question. Will Adobe AE work on my system using 32 bit? I own Adobe
Web Premium CS3, I am a dinosaur! When I purchased CS3 Web Premium I spent
a lot of money. Now with the cloud the price is very reasonable, $20 per
month for AE seems like a good deal, I jusf do not like to spend a cent on
any program that I can not try first.
Will Adobe AE work on my system using 32 bit?
After Effects will only run on 64-bit computers because it is 64-bit software.
If you're intractable on the point of running Win 7 in 64-bit rather than 32-bit, you will need a second machine to run AE. Lots of memory -- 16 GB for starters -- is good, and having a dedicated drive, say, 1 TB for your user files is another good thing.
Thanks all for the help, I need to make arrangments to buy another system
using Win 8 and 64 bit. I know your right, change just comes hard for me.
Thanks again, Chuck
