I have been struggling to define a new coordinate system in AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 but I failed at the last step of defition; I always see the message telling me that I don't have the write access to the folder C:\ProgramData\AutodeskGeospatial Coordinate System\.
I don't know if it's Windows 7(64 bit) which restrict me from accessing that location or ProdName. Anyway, I successfully login as SuperUser and I am Admin of my PC...
Furthermore, I don't locate the folder which the warning message tells me that I have no access right.
I would appreciate a rapid feedback.
Thanks to you all

>> I am Admin of my PC
that does not mean you are running AutoCAD Map3D "as adminstrator". To have admin-rights does not mean that you can save files into a read-only folder (without doing something special).
>> Furthermore, I don't locate the folder which the warning message tells me
That is strange and that may be the source of the problem. For me: that folder does exist, if it does not at your pc you may have a problem with your Map3D-installation. In that case (you verirfied once more the non-existance of this folder) you should try a repair-install.
Good luck, - alfred -
I have found the problem: I have to run the program as an Administrator.
Still, I don't find the folder but that doesn't matter as I have successfully defined the coordinate systems that I wanted and I am trying to see how I can define new transformation paths.
Otherwise, I spent a lot of time defining and projecting data in ArcGIS before bringing them to AutoCAD Civil 3D.
