Windows 7 64 bit, AutoCAD 2009 and Civil 3D 2009

IT just purchased two new computers that are running Windows 7 64 bit. Our company uses both AutoCAD 2009 and Civil 3D 2009 on Windows XP 32 bit and I have the object enabler installed on AutoCAD to be able to see the Civil objects. I can not locate a object enabler for the 64 bit system. Does anyone know if AutoCAD 2009 64 bit can display Civil 3D objects? If not, has anyone else encountered this problem and found a solution? (I attempted to install AutoCAD 2009 32 bit on the 64 bit system but the deployment failed.)

Thanks in advance.

There is no fix: 64bit OEs do not exist for R2009.

>>>objects...<<<

R2009 is R2009, whether 32bit or 64bit, it's off the same DVD from the same
production run, from the same code.

Then is there a way to install the 32 bit AutoCAD on the 64 bit system, so I can use the 32 bit OE?
