One thought on “Installing 64bit AutoCAD Architecture 2009 on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 64bit

  1. Longbow helped me continue to use my AutoCAD 2009 after my old computer crashed and could not be repaired. I bought a new Windows 10 machine and installed the Longbow Converter. When I had a problem getting through the installation, I contacted support and they set up a tech support appointment for me with James. He was so nice and so knowledgeable.
    He knew just what to do to get me up and running.
    I highly recommend this product and this company! Thanks
