"This has been an issue with AutoCAD for several years. Although Autodesk makes sure that both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of their software is available, some third-party add-ons will only work with the 32-bit versions.

If you have a 64-bit OS and have some of these expensive addons, then you really want to install AutoCAD as a 32-bit program. See here for a method that should allow you to install AutoCAD 2008 as 32-bit on your 64-bit computer if that's what you really need to do."
