My version of AutoCAD does nt install on Windows 7 64bit - so now what do I do?
I've been using an old version of Autocad, AutoCAD 2000 and have some comprehensive drawings which over the years now include the layout of the school with:
all data points colour coded by cabinet/area
switch information for each cabinet/area
access point locations
I am upgrading my workstation from windows 7 32bit to windows 7 64bit and my old AutoCAD version 2000 is not compatible.
I've looked at the prices for AutoCAD LT with 64bit support and it's almost £1000
Does anyone know of anything cheaper that I could use to keep my drawings up to date?

If you are still happy with the older software can't you just use xpmode?

Install what? XP Mode is basically a virtual windows. I don't mean compatability mode.
