How to fix AutoCAD LT 2002 GEDIT 3 error

AutoCAD LT 2002 may suddenly crash with a Gedit 3 error (pictured below).

You get this after using AutoCAD for a while.
This is can be caused by drivers, or conflicts with certain software. Removing the software should also make the issue go away, if you can identify it.

And sometimes you just can't remove the software causing the problem. So here's a method worth a try.

First, you'll need to identify whether your AutoCAD LT 2002 has Service Pack 1 installed. From the AutoCAD command line enter "._vernum" (without quotes) and you should get something similar to _VERNUM = "K.0.44" (read only).

If it reads K.0.30 then you'll need to install Service Pack 1 first.

Next, proceed to install the patch to fix this error. Some sites refer to it as Service Pack 2.

Retry your AutoCAD LT 2002. The bug should go away now.

Good Luck.
