Is this the warning dialog you're getting?

I was able to force the error here by changing my drawing units to Inches (but any of the other listed units

should also cause the error). Civil 3D only supports Feet or Meters as Units.


Enter -DWGUNITS @ command line (with the dash). What units are reported?
