Map 3D 2010 google earth

I had been using the Google earth publish dwg to kml for quite a while. But today it will not work. I reloaded the program but nothing. I went back to the autodesk web site and saw this....

 

  • Graduated: March 21, 2012

    Please note that AutoCAD® Google Earth Labs application is no longer available. We are aware of the importance of creating kmz/kml files as well as including preliminary surface and aerial imagery in your design workflows and are actively researching possible solutions. At this time we cannot share information about potential future product enhancements. When appropriate, we will communicate technology plans via various channels including Autodesk Labs, Facebook, Blogs and our Discussion Groups.

Does this mean somehow autodesk took this function away?

Help!!!

Another note: I did upgrade to Google earth 6. Might this have something to do with it?

I think no, simply your Map needs a complete uninstall.

When you're done, install again your copy of Publisher-to-GE for 2010, and everything will be all right back again.

If you lost it, I can send it by email (I collect each Autodesk Labs' plugin, even if my glorious Map2006 doesn't support).

Do you mean to uninstall and reinstall my Autocad map program? and then install the Google earth PublishDWGtoGE? Or just the PublishDWGtoGE?

I do have the file PublishDWGtoGE that I originally used and worked  so no need to email that as of now.

Thanks....Kevin

That's it, uninstall Map and PublishDWGtoGE, perform a robust Ccleaner by Pirisoft unitl you get no errors, reboot, and reinstall first Map then the publisher.

OK, I will do that later today and keep you updated. Thanks.

 

p.s. Do you know anything about why autodesk has this as "no longer available" on the link below

(scroll down a bit under "Google earth extension for autocad")

Well I've reloaded Autocad, ran the CCleaner uninstalled and reinstalled the PublishDWGtoGE, but when I enter the command "publishkml", it is an unknown command. Am I missing something here? Do I need to load something else besides just running the setup? I do not have the google earth toolbar that I used to have. I think it has four commands on it, one being the publishkml.

Pls advise....many thanks!

Sounds like you did NOT execute what I advised to you, sir.

You gotta do it in the EXACT order as above written: read again my post "23-06-2012 05:43 PM"...

Oh yes. your right I did not uninstall publishkml after the cad uninstall. What a bummer! I will try this again and let you know of the results. (At least its not a busy Monday morning!)

Thanks.
