Calibri is a TrueType font distributed with newer versions of Windows and MS Office. AutoCAD can use it if it is installed in Windows. But I doubt you can just copy it to an old Windows version (for copyright reasons).

Thanks Vladimir,

My window had Calibri font already, but there's no "Calibri.shx" file in Autocad font. So I need the "calibri.shx" file to paste in to Autocad font folder. I'm not sure do Autocad works if we only have the "calibri" font in window. But if it works, maybe the text style is not "Calibri". COuld you please healp me, are these text below "Calibri" font? Thank you so much.

That sample looks exactly like Calibri to me.  If you have that in your Windows font collection, you should be able to use it in AutoCAD, without having to put it into AutoCAD's fonts folder.  In the Ribbon's text-editing panel, here for selected content within an Mtext object:
 
There is no Calibri.SHX font.  SHX fonts make characters made up of lines, and don't have what typographers call "weight", except by doubling up on some of the lines (or tripling, etc.).  [Calibri is only very slightly "weighted," but it is a little -- you can tell from things like the ends of the capital S character or the end of the "tail" of the R, which are not perpendicular to the direction at the end, or generally, vertical elements very slightly heavier than horizontals (more apparent in your image than in mine).]
 
You might find some .SHX font that looks fairly similar, but you won't find an exact match.
