It sounds like you downloaded but never installed.
In fact if you try to install it should give you an error that wrong OS version.

Did you install or not?

If yes, show a screen capture of it running.

If no, simply download the 64-bit version and install it.  So easy!

If it installed, you got the correct version my friend. There is nothing more to do, you cannot install the wrong bit-version in Windows with AutoCAD. You got the correct version, whther you think so or not.


So what is really going on? Are you anticipating a new PC or laptop perhaps? Or read some tip somewhere and you are trying to emulate it?
