Hello Troy,


Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community Forum.


AS per the description I understand you are getting “internal error: gedit3” while using AutoCAD LT 2002.


Which version of Windows 7 is installed on your computer?


Let’s try these methods to get this problem resolved.


Method 1:


There could be possibility of some background program conflicting with the program, let’s put the computer in clean boot and see if the issue persists.

How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista


Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot" under more information to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting


Method 2:


If the above method does not solve the problem, most probably this could be the compatibility issue with Windows 7.

We can try to run the program in Compatibility mode and check.


Make older programs run in this version of Windows


Also, please refer to the suggestion from michele_coser on 11-12-2012 08:59 AM
