Missing Dialog boxes within Map 3D 2015 or Map 3D commands within Civil 3D 2015

When using Map 3D 2015, or Map 3D commands within Civil 3D 2015, some dialog boxes are not displayed, despite the fact that FILEDIA AND CMDDIA are set to 1.

This causes their message to be displayed on the command line instead of inside a dialog box.  This is caused by missing Map 3D support folders in the file search path.

To work around this issue, make sure the path to the ade.dcl file is set in the Support File Search Path.

To accomplish this, please follow these steps.
