AutoCAD 9 using license manager, with five user license. I can install on a Windows 7 32 Bit professional machine and AutoCAD 9 works fine. But, when I try to install it on a Windows 7 64 bit machine, I get an error stating  

"You cannot install this product on the current operating system."

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this?

You're sure it's Autocad 9?

According to Wikipedia, that version is from 1987. I don't even know if it works on Windows.

If you're referring to Autocad 2009, then on this page Windows 7 is not listed as a supported system, and in this forum it states that you have to use 64bit Autocad on 64bit systems.

You can use XP mode or a VirtualBox XP guest and install Autocad in that VM.

HTH,
Dan

OK.
So: get a 64 bit version or install XP Mode or VBox with XP and install your 32 bit version there.

None of those are an option. Any other options?

Yup. Upgrade.
But I assumed you don't want to spend the money on upgrades.
