Q - question

Where can I find my current menu and other user files in AutoCAD 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009?

A - answer All user files (like .MNU/.MNS files, ACAD.PGP/ACLT.PGP/ACADLT.PGP, ACAD.LIN, ACAD.PAT, ACADISO versions, .SHX shapes, etc.) are now - compliant with the Windows XP/Vista certification - stored in subfolders of the "Documents and Settings" folder (or "Users"..."Roaming" in Vista). Please note the folders may be hidden by default. Your current path to user files of roamable profile is stored in the AutoCAD variable ROAMABLEROOTPREFIX.

You can also use the LISP function (findfile) to locate support files - try e.g. the command:

(findfile "ACAD.PAT")
