Interesting find this morning. In C3D 2014, the MAPEXPORT asks to save the file name, give the file a name, and then nothing happens. I have done a repair and to no avail, nothing. The dialog box does not appear, and no file is created.
Solved! Go to Solution.
BTW, I have tried the shapefile and SDF options. Neither works. DGN works fine. Haven't tested the others.
Sorry for confirming this for the German C3D 2014 too (also with the option "Start Civil3D as AutoCAD").
The dialog for filename is ok, then the dialog for the export options does not come up, command finished (without any result).

MAPIMPORT doesn't work either for shp or sdf.
Have you tried it with FILEDIA set to 0 ? If you do and you get the option to enter a file name. Try entering a tilde (~). That should bring up the dialog box. This might not help but may assist in diagnosis. I don't have the 2014 trial loaded yet. Hopefully this weekend.
I spoke with Autodesk and it's a known issue. They sent me the file to fix, but I don't know if I can share the information to fix it. I will email them and ask. If they say I can I will post the fix.
>> Have you tried it with FILEDIA set to 0
You must do two things to get this command running without filedialog:
1) set FILEDIA to 0
2) start the command with a leading dash -MAPEXPORT
Just one of the two options (like used for other commands) will always start the filedialog for MAPEXPORT.
Anyway, also that startprocedure does not call the options dialog (for how and what to export):
Zieldateityp für den Export angeben oder ? für Liste <SHP>:c:\temp\xx
Zieldateityp für den Export angeben oder ? für Liste <SHP>:
Namen der zu erstellenden Datei eingeben <C:\TEMP\xx.shp>:
...here the command ends without additional options or export-options dialog.
(sorry for german language)

Here you go guys. Attached is a file for the fix...
After this open Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 and you should be able to use the MAPIMPORT and MAPEXPORT commands.
