I'm using Land Desktop Companion with Civil 3d 2009, Windows XPsp3, sometimes if you type aecopen at the command line, that will work. Otherwise

 

In AutoCAD Land Desktop, at the command line, enter options.
In the Options dialog box, Files tab, expand Support File Search Path.
Mark sure none of these are missing, (the last 3 only apply if you have Raster Design):

If this doesn't fix it, I have a work around. When you first open a drawing, before you do anything else, the very first command should be specific to the application you usually use. I use Land Desktop Companion, so I start a command from the Points or Terrain menu, the application will initialize and all the commands will work as usual for that drawing session.
