OPEN FILE ISSUE ON CIVIL 3D 2010

evrytime i click open button on civil 3d, it tells me to enter the file path instead of opening the windows explorer display page where i can go and click on the file i want. I think i have clicked on something by accident, and i don't know how to fix it now.

Can anyone please help me?

I am having a lot of trouble going back and forth on my computer tab to open a file, instead of just opening the file from autocad civil 3d.

I have also attached the file to show you what it says everytime i click on open tab.

Set the system variable FILEDIA to 1.

 

BTW, most people (myself included) won't open DOC files as they can easily contain a virus. Just post a png or jpg image directly to the forums.

Type FILEDIA on the command line and then enter 1.
