Re: Map 3D 2010 google earth

Well, I went through again and this time followed exactly what you said. However, no luck. Funny thing - I did a search on my pc for the files that were supposed to be installed with the GE publisher but none of those files are found on pc. (AeccDWGtoGE.arx, etc.) It seems the install did not install them, even though it said installation successful.

Here's some info on my setup that may have something to do with the problem:

the last time I made a successful export to a google earth file was before my laptop crashed. Since then I have changed from my previous XP version to Windows Vista. (I was not able to reinstall windows XP but had a liscense for vista).

I also changed my version of google earth to version 6 from 5. (I did read somewhere that it only works for version 5)??

I have a feeling these have something to do with the unsuccessful install of GE publisher.

Is there a different download for windows XP and Vista? If so, Do you possibly have a Vista download you could send me?

I really appreciate any further help on this!

Thanks.

What's the size of your DwgPublishToGEInstaller.msi ?

The one for 2010 release must have 1,404,416 bytes, no matter what OS you have.

Since there is evidently no other ideas from my Distinguished Mentor or anyone else, the matter of Autodesk's PublishDWGtoGE not functioning is anyone guess. My assumption is it doesnt work in conjunction with Windows Vista and Google earth version 6.2.2.6613. I will recommend to anyone else having the problem of converting shp to kml to try out the MAPWINDOW program with the add-on shp2earth. It has worked well for me.

Please note that AutoCAD® Google Earth Labs application is no longer available.

 

If you don't find a better solution, we have released some freeware to output KML files from drawing objects.   It's a tiny 15kb VLX that works on any Map based AutoCAD (even back to version 2000), that includes Map, LDT and Civil3D.  Most linear objects are supported directly and a companion tool explodes things like blocks & text to polylines so they show up on the export.

 

Here is a link to download, email improvement requests to dotson [at] dotsoft [dot] com.

Sounds cool, Terry, I'll test it a.s.a.p. but... in Gis environment Object Data are more valuable than simple vectors: does your tool export OD as long as the geometry?

... export OD along as the geometry.

 

Good idea, we added that.

Well done, T, but you'd better update the Readme file about the brand new OD feature...
