    See Autodesk does not officially support 2009 and older versions of AutoCAD as well as AutoCAD LT on Windows 7. Why don't you just install AutoCAD 2010? 32-bit and 64-bit versions of AutoCAD 2010 and AutoCAD LT 2010 are available and and are supported on Microsoft Windows 7 as well. I think installing latest one will be a good idea.

    Yes older version of AutoCAD are not supported by Autodesk Windows on 7 but you can still install it using compatibility mode. In order to do that you just have to right click on setup file for installing Autodesk and select properties. In properties window, click on compatibility tab, check mark "Run this program in compatibility mode for..." box and select Windows XP SP2, click on ok and you are done. When you will launch the application next time it will get installed in compatibility mode without any issues. If you are not able to install it with Windows XP SP2 than you can try some other from drop down list.
