You want to reset the AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2011 user settings for a particular user.

Solution

To reset the AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2011 user settings for a particular user, follow these steps:

Important!

Make sure you back up any customized Civil 3D 2011 files before you implement the following procedure.
    1. Log on to the computer as that user.
    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:

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R18.1\ACAD-9000:409
    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\\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\C3D 2011 C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Autodesk\C3D 2011

      For Windows XP


      C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Autodesk\C3D 2011
      C:\Documents and Settings\\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.
