Select File dialog box won't open anymore

When I try to Open a file or Save As a file through the pulldown application menu in AutoCAD Architecture (upper left button), the Selec File Dialog Box no longer opens (the window that pops up where you select what you want to open or where you want to save to). I only get a prompt in the command line to enter the entire string of the location on my computer / network that I want to open from or save to. This makes these functions essentially impossible.


The only way I can open a file is to double click the file itself (it then opens in AutoCAD), and I can't SaveAs. This is very quickly going to be a huge problem...


Can anyone help me figure out why my dialiog box is not coming up anymore? (I don't know when exactly this started happening, but it used to work fine. Have I inadvertently changed a setting that is screwing me up?)

Is FILEDIA set to 0?  If so, set it to 1.
