after a recent crash civil 3d now asks me to type in the full path and file name for a file i want to open after selecting the open option on the menu or toolbar.
i know there is a variable that requires re setting but i don't know how. advice gratefully recieved.
I have run into a similar situation where Civil 3D crashed and now when I try to open a file in Civil 3D it asks in the command line: "enter name of drawing to open <.>: The way I've been able to get around it is to have civil 3D open and in the start menu I search for the drawing file and double click it there to open it in Civil 3D. This is not cool. Anyone, please help!!!
When civil3d crashes like that some parameters get set to the wrong variable. As the previous post mentions, you should Type FILEDIA at the command line and set this variable to 1. Then your open command will work as designed. GL.
