    May want to creae a virtual machine and install XP SP3 in that for LDT 2006. sun VirtualBox has been recommended to me, but have not yet tried it.

    Are you on Win 7 64-bit, or 32-bit?

    Did you get it to install? If so, you may want to try setting UAC to its lowest settings, to see if you can get it to run without UAC. And of course, make sure your user is a full Administrator on your machine (not good practice, but necessary for most Autodesk products to run correctly).

    (For the record, I've never tried, and don't know if it's even possible to run 2006 on Win 7. I'm running 2008 on Win 7 x64, but have never tried anything older than that.)

    I copieds this off the Acad web site discussion group. See if it works for you.

    "not sure if '04 is "too old" or not, but this worked with '06. you need to go to make the main .exe run as an administrator. easy way to do that is to go to start -> all programs -> autodesk -> land desk (your version), and right click on the exe launcher (probably AutoCAD Civil 3D Land Desktop Companion 2004 or similar). select "open file location", which will natually open the main folder it was installed to. the correct file should already be selected (highlighted), but in case its not, it should be acad.exe or similar and have the land desk icon (not the xlm file that looks the same, this one is the application). right click the file and go to the compatibility tab. at the bottom you will see "run this prog as an admin". put a check next to it and click "OK". then try to run it again. as i said before, i havent ran that version, but this works for '06. good luck."

    I had to create a dual boot system and installed XP 32 bit operating system. It was the only workaround I could find.
