Does anyone know If I buy a new Windows 7 machine in the near future will I be able to install Architectural Desktop 2004 using the new OS's XP Mode? If yes, would this old program also be compatible with a 64 bit machine? Thanks in advance. Rob

FYI, only top end versions of Win7 will come with that XP feature.

I understand that the upper end Windows 7 only has the XPMode. Say the XPM works for the old program, will the autocad 2004 work on a 64 bit machine? Rob

Most likely not, but look around here and see if anyone got 2004 to run in
any 64bit OS.

I just installed today (10/28/09) Autocad 2004 on Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. It works fine. Not sure about the 64 bit.

Today I installed my new PC with Windows 7 64-bit and the WindowsVirtualPC which then works like a Windows XP. After that, I installed within the virtual PC the AutoCAD2004 and it seems to work fine, I could open my files.
good luck to you

I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit over VISTA 64 bit, then the Virtual PC and the XP Mode. I installed AutoCAD 2004 in the XP Mode window with no errors, but when I went to run it, AutoCAD couldn't find my license. Did you install it differently?

I was able to get Autocad 2004 set up with Win 7 (64 bit) XP mode, and it seems to run fine with one annoying exception.  There are two mouse pointers - one the typical AC crosshairs and then a standard mouse arrow, which I assume is the Win 7 mouse, and one lags behind the other.  Very distracting - anyone have a fix for this?
