AutoCad LT 2011

I have a user who had AutoCadLT 2011 installed on their laptop and we're upgrading to a new laptop that has Windows 7 Professional X64. I looked at the compatibility settings for this and it said Windows 7 X64 was compatible so I'm not quite sure why I'm getting the error attached. Can someone please advise if I need to buy another version of AutoCad or if there's a way to make it work with Windows 7 Professional X64?

Thanks

Did you download the right one?  For a 64 bit OS you need AutoCAD LT 2011 64-bit.

Maybe this error is very generic, on this thread,

The first reply mentions the minimum requirements, does your system meet all those requirements?

Also the last response has a few potential solutions.

He mentions,
"Are there any clues to be found here?  Your first error message sometimes result from trying to install 32-bit version on a 64-bit machine, or vice versa."

Maybe you have a criss-cross of the bit versions?
