Resolving user specific issues by resetting AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011


You have a situation where a single user is experiencing an issue with a particular command or setting.  When another user logs onto the same machine, they do not experience the same issue.

  2. On the Start menu (Windows), click Run.
  3. In the Run dialog box, enter regedit.
  4. In the Registry Editor, browse to the following key and delete it:

  5. Close the Registry Editor.
  6. Using Windows Explorer, browse to and delete the following user's application folders:

    For Windows Vista and Windows 7

    C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\C3D 2011 C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\C3D 2011

    For Windows XP

    C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\Autodesk\C3D 2011
    C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Autodesk\C3D 2011
  7. Start AutoCAD Civil 3D. This will initiate the secondary installer, re-creating the deleted files and folders.
