We are using AutoCAD LT 2002. When we start making changes to drawing files in the program, a GEDIT 3 Error message pops up. After selecting OK in the error message, it asks if you want to save a recoverable version of the drawing file, then proceeds to exit the program. We have tried the repair AutoCAD and restarting the computer after the repair is complete. That option did not solve the problem, so what would be the next option in trying to solve the error problem?
I already googled the error. I'm not finding anything that is helping me fix the problem. All I have found is that uninstalling AVAST could maybe fix the problem, which I don't see AVAST installed on the computer or there could be a conflict with the hardware or software on the computer interfering with AutoCAD. The operating system we use is Windows XP. We also tried updating AutoCAD with the service pack that autodesk provides on their site which didn't work either.
Autodesk Recommended Clean Install Procedure:
There is something on your system that is causing the error. An installed program of some sort.
Finding which one is the issue. AVAST is but one.
Short of starting over with the CAD install the next step is to format the hard-drive and start from scratch.

A recent software/driver add or change or upgrade/downgrade on your PCs triggered the GEDIT3 error in LT2002: sadly, LT2002 is prone to just a problem and there is no fix, and Autodesk is sure not spending any time on it since that version has been out of circulation for quite some time.
So, what changed on your PCs about the time this started showing up? Nothing would be an incorrect answer. It's always triggered by a change on the PC. It's not easy to find, but you can start now without a Google search.
