I have autocad civil 3d 2008 in my pc. From last 2 days I got a different problem i.e. when I am selecting open / save command from File menu graphical file select explorer is not opening just message in the command window . Previously I used to select files using graphical file explorer.
Any body please help me on this one.

Hi all, I got it by entering FILEDIA = 1 .
Thak you all.
If you get to the point where it's asking you for the file path and you realize you need to reset FILEDIA but you don't want to have to cancel the command. Enter a Tilde [~]. That will bring up the file dialog box temporarily and let you complete the command.
Sooo thankful to find this post! I was pulling out the little bit of hair I have left, trying to figure out hoe to fix this issue.
i want to know how i keeps changing on me??? this is the 3rd time i have had to look for this posted fix.
Can't answer that - But if you add these lines to [or create the file in your search path] Acaddoc.lsp. It should help.
(SETVAR "CMDDIA" 1)
(SETVAR "FILEDIA" 1)
Some routines within Civil 3D change parameters, particulary the filedia, and if the program crashes the routine cannot change it back to the way it was.
