  1. You can

    A. install the 64 bit version of autocad

    B. Wipe the computer and install windows 7 32 Bit.

    C. Upgrade to windows 7 pro, enterprise, or ultimate and try and run autocad in XP mode
  2. 64bit Windows will run 32bit software using WOW, which is Windows on Windows, and basically runs your 32bit software in an isolated space. - I would use the term emulator, but it's not quite right.

    If you read this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windows-frequently-asked-questions it will tell you that most 32bit applications will run on 64bit Windows.

    Autocad is a special.case. They are known to have several versions that do not support 64bit windows or windows 7 at all. There are also cases of plugins that.just flat out won't run on 64bit windows. This is why it's a good case for XP mode
