How to convert shapefiles to .dwg format using QGIS 1.7.0?

QGIS can konvert shapefiles to DXF. Next step is to use

BUT you'll need Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or Box to store your DXF files, and the outputfile is also placed in Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or Box.

You can only use the free version for 25 conversions minuttes a day.
