Can't find a ".pgp" file?

So i turned off the "command line completion" settings.  However, now I have to type in the full command in order to run it.  I found that there should be an "acad.pgp" file somewhere in the support paths that will allow me to define command aliases.  So i did a complete search of my C:\ drive for "*.pgp" and the search came up empty; I tried a few different ways and places (trying narrow it down) but couldn't find ANY of these files. 

 

I have the student version of 2012.  Does this have something to do with it?  I wouldn't think it should because of what it says on the education site: "Important Note :The Autodesk Student Version software incorporates all the functionality of our professional licenses, but includes a print banner making the software inappropriate for professional, commercial, or for-profit purposes."

 

Does any one have an idea what the deal is with this?

Who set up your Acad?

If it's gone, repair it.

at the command line type

(findfile "acad.pgp")

It should report back where it was found.

Mine is at

"C:\\Users\\cojonez\\appdata\\roaming\\autodesk\\autocad mechanical 2013 - english\\r19.0\\enu\\support\\acad.pgp"
