Autocad 2008 & Windows 7 64bit

Hi

 

We just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 64bit on the Cad guy's computer.  Trying to install Autocad 2008 and it says this is a 32bit program and not supported on 64 bit...etc.  is there a work around or files that can be replaced?  

 

I researched for a while and I found this link in the forums: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Architecture/aca-08-and-64-bit/m-p/2025385  that basically replaces the associated MSI files with replaced ones so that specific version can install on a 64bit version.

 

Is there a way to get those files that the Autodesk Support Team mentions for regular autocad 2008?  We need 64 bit for more Ram and to help future proof the systems as everything is moving towards 64bit. 

 

Thanks

you can try to use this method works with all 2008 autocad based products: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Architecture/Updated-Workaround-instructions-for-64-Bit-OS-Ins...

no gurantee this going to let you install it on windows 7 because 2008 products are not supported on windows 7

good luck
