Text will not display in BOOTCAMP- AUTOCAD 2012

Hi.  I have files given to me by my teacher who works in an architecture firm. The files open on our school computers (Windows) and display the text that blocks such as those for sections and annotations have.  However on my MAC i am running WINDOWS7 on bootcamp. The text is missing when i import or open the dwg files with the blocks. Please if anyone has any solutions or suggestions to help fix this I would be grateful.

Perhaps the text is set to be Annotative, the Annotation Scale you currently have set is not supported by the text, and the Annotation Visibility (ALLANNOVISIBILE) is set to zero.  Try setting the ALLANNOVISIBILE to one if it is not already, and see if the text shows up.  If that is not it, you might want to post your question on the MAC forum:
