Windows 7 is tricky....
- Win7 comes in 32 and 64 bit. It does not handle 16bit software
- contact Auto Desk and ask them if your software version will work with Win7.

It depends on the version; those two pieces of software have high dependencies regarding OS requirements. If you have a version that's as old as XP, then most likely the answer is no and you will have to upgrade to the latest (and they are not particularly cheap - particularly AutoCAD).
Furthermore, if you are currently doing development work for older .NET versions with older V.S., when you migrate to new versions of V.S., you will have to migrate your code's .NET platform as well.

Isn't there a 3gb limitation if you get a 32bit version of Win7 to run 16bit programs?
- Sounds like a waste of a new computer.
- Will the OP be limited to releasing 16bit programs? Will clients be forced to use 32 bit version of Windows?
