AutoCAD 2007 is compatibility with Win7 64bit?

Hi, I installed AutoCAD 2007 software in my machine (Company machine, Win7 64bit OS).

When I opened this, it needs to be input the admin user name and password.

Our IT couldn't grant me the admin right.

So I am asking whether there is compatiblity issue with Win7 64bit OS?

And could we use another way to install this software?

Thank you for your help on this.

2007 is not supported in Win7 (32bit or 64bit).


99% of the time, your Windows Log-in needs to run AutoCAD 2007 once as local or full Admin then after that your Windows Log-in can be knocked back down.

Hello from France


Welcome to the Autodesk/AutoCAD Forums !


*** Now my standard answer ***


To run old 32bits AutoCAD software on a modern 64 bits PC with Win Seven x64 / Win Eight x64, they are 3 solutions :


1 -


2 - Run a VMWare with Win 2000+SP4 32 bits or Win XP Pro 32 bits


3 - Try to use the special "Win XP Mode" of Win Seven/Eight

Very often, they are some problems and it's very slow !


As far as I know, solutions 1 & 2 are OK ...


Bye, Pat
