Civil 3D – 2010 Update 1 resolution

I have finally patched the Civil 3D 2010 up to Version 7.0.1348.0.

Well I’d like to tell everyone that I solved the bug, but I cannot.  I gutted the app and installed again.  Time is money, and you all don’t pay very well.  So I had to get my unit on the move very quickly.  A VAR Tech decided to throw his 2 cents in, and I figured I’d play along while I had him available.  It was not long before the application was rendered useless.

Checked items and review

Correct Update File

Make sure the file is c3d2010sp1.exe, and the size should be 9,853,952 bytes.

AECC Version

In Civil 3D, key in AECCVERSION.  The list of AECC modules will run through, displaying their respective versions.  The OEM will respond with 7.0.1289.0, and Upgrade 1 will come back with 7.0.1348.0.  If the latter is found, the Update will not install.

Civil 3D – 2010 Update 1

updated 8/82009

The Civil 3D 2010 Update 1 is available at the Autodesk service release site. 

I have updated and corrected the links for both Civil and Civil 3D, but the “…Autodesk product could not be located…” error is still there, no matter where the service pack was received from.  If anyone else is having the same problem, please post your issues here for the community.

Civil 3D 2010 Update 1

There is a wide array of fixes.  I noticed a lot of spiral geometry fixes, 2009 issues, and profile view fixes as well.  I have selected 1 item from each category listed in the README accompanying the installation.  There were at least 60 items:

General – AutoCAD Civil no longer closes unexpectedly when you run the LIST command on AutoCAD Land Desktop entities.

Alignments – Sample lines of an alignment that is a data referenced object no longer disappear when you use the RECOVER command to open the drawing containing such alignment.
