Map Export Object Type Issue

In AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 while exporting polyline to shape object in Map , you will get Fatal error. Also you will not receive the object type selection Point, Line, Polygon or Text in the Map Export dialog selections tab.

At the same time if you did it with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008, then you will be able to do it properly.

To overcome this you need  to modify Mapexport.ini

Location of  mapexport.ini : C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\C3D 2009

Then open mapexport.ini

Scroll down to the [SHP] section and change it to this
[SHP]
File=True
Rootname=False
EntTypes=Types

Note the EntTypes values.

As you modify ini file, you will get the dialog as shown below

Map Export Shape Dialog

Now you the selection dialog as well will be able to export it in to shape.
