Windows 7: Cannot open AutoCad Lt 98 in Windows 7, 32 Ent

Cannot open AutoCad Lt 98 in Windows 7, 32 Ent

I cannot open AutoCad Lt 98 in Windows 7, 32 bit. I get the message, "Fatal Error: Heaping Error" then AutoCad exits. I have uninstalled/reinstalled 2x's and tried opening by right clicking the start-up icon under "Troubleshoot Compatibility." AutoCad will open for about 10 secs then display the same error message. AutoDesk is no help. Other community posts have mixed responces: some say no problems, others no solutions. Anybody know something I haven't been able to stumble across yet? I don't have $1k for a new version. Thanks

Yeh I saw that post too. The difference between his system and mine is his is 64 bit and mine is 32 bit. I'm thinking that's where my problem is. Thanks for your interest.

In my opinion this is not the problem.

Lt 98 is very old version,pre-windows 7.

You might try XP mode, if you have a version of Windows 7 that supports it.

(It's XP, running within a virtual machine.) It may limit Autocad's performance, but perhaps it'll still be better than when the software was new. (1998: what was that - Pentium II?)

I tried all the compatibility modes several times now. Even tried to download it to my wifes laptop with Windows 7, 64 bit and it wouldn't take it either. I think I'm stuck unless someone has a miracle they'd like to share. Thanks all.
