If you are one of those “lucky ones” to have created your deployment directly from DVDs you may notice that tool palettes are displaying fine but some Civil sub-assemblies and assemblies are missing from the palettes. This appears to be the issue only with deployments created from DVDs but not if Civil 3D 2010 is installed as a stand-alone.
For existing deployments that failed to copy tool palettes there is also a way to repair it. Here are the steps:
- Copy the entire i.e. E:\x86\C3D\CONTENT directory from DVD 2 into….AdminImage\x86\C3D\ directory. This should overwrite all Content directory
- Modify the deployment and configure it again to update your deployment
- Repair your installation of Civil 3D 2010, using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel by selecting Reinstall option.
- Start Civil 3D 2010 and confirm that tool palettes have subassemblies.
