Tips for Windows 11 and old software?

Experiencing trouble loading AutoCAD 2016 perpetual onto a Windows 11 computer.  Download link doesn't seem to want to work.  

 

Does anyone know if there's a workaround?  

Thanks!

AutoCAD 2016 is not easily available at Autodesk anymore: do you not have a copy of that expensive software you purchased stored somewhere safe to use?

AutoCAD2016 is not supported in Windows11. That means Autodesk is never going to offer a fix/solution.

AutoCAD 2016 SP1 update is required for it to work in WIn10 (and by implication, Win11): do you have that download too?

this site offers free (and not so free) tips on getting old AutoCAD to work in newer Windows version, explore there for more ideas https://blog.longbowsoftware.com/

Best of luck.
