Windows 7 has reduced compatibility with old applications because of its new structure and architecture. Since Windows XP everything has changed and now it's working in a total different way. I have seen that in many cases, users manually started the installation of applications from old CDs and it worked or if it's not working, Windows will automatically adjust its compatibility options to make the application start. You should proceed the same. Insert the CD, use Windows Explore to browse it and start the application manually, ignoring the autorun part. Also, this may not work because of the 64 environment which requires dependency for the application. In most of the cases, a Windows 7 64-bit version will refuse to launch old applications.
