I am using Autocad Civil 3D 2012, I have a drawing where I create a corridor with its assembly's.


My problem is that I have 2 diferente installations of autocad civi 3D 2012, both are english metric versions, all the menus and help are in english, but when I open the drawing in one of those copies the Point, Link and shape codes are in spanish and in the other they are in english.


How can I change the codes to be all in english, this seem to be a configuration option but I can note find IT.


Thanks for any help.

scan your harddisk for the file "" ... open it with a texteditor, if you found the place of the not-wanted version save the two files:

  • C3DStockSubassemblies.dll

and replace BOTH by copying the files from a directory where you found the wanted-version to this dir.


IMPORTANT: BACKUP your files, not just overwrite them!
