AutoCAD Mechanical in "DOS" mode

I'm using AutoCAD Mechanical 2013. I attempted to open igs & stp files with Inventor Fusion. The result, many common used functions in Mechanical has become DOS mode.

 

Eg. When I key in saveas, it will prompt me on the command line to sellect which version, then key in the entire path of the new file to be kept.

 

Can some experts share how to resolve it? MTIA:smileysad:

fileDia  press enter then type in 1

try typing that into the command line

Another issue: I can't open the Layer manager dialog box :smileyindifferent:

 

It prompted me to enter Layer/Object keys
