The 64bit version of Windows 7 requires a different build of the software as well. As you can see in the image below, you encounter errors while you run it. However, I have tried a way and it works normally.

Download and install DOSBox, then launch it. Extract the program archive to C:\fractint then in DOSBox, type mount C:\ c:\fractint. Access the files using C: and then type FRACTINT.EXE. The program should run properly now.

with current version of dosbox:
to run fractint, rename its dir fractint, move all files directly to that dir [remove intermediary dir] and locate in C root dir
open dosbox
type:mount c c:\fractint
