import .arg file on a mac

This year we started working with the program AutoCAD at school. To make things easier we need to import the same profile as our teacher. The teacher gave us already the .arg file in our mail. I am working with an Apple computer, a MacBook Pro. Everybody found out how to import the file ( on a Windows ) and how to start working with AutoCAD like we have seen in class. But I am still having problems importing the profile. Does anyone know how to import the profile when using a Mac?
thank you,

I doubt very much that this is possible. ARG files are Windows registry files...Windows. Also, the two products are very different; the settings stored in the ARG file would not be fully supported on a MAC.

Unless the MAC version has a translator going on (I'm not aware of one, but I don't use a MAC either) you can't do this.

So there is no option to change my current lay-out to the lay-out that I need?

>> to change my current lay-out

If you mean by "current lay-out" the user-interface, how the menus/icons/... are arranged ==> then NO, the Mac-version (it's user-interface) of AutoCAD looks really different to a Windows-version.


BTW: there is a special forum here for "AutoCAD for Mac" >>>here<<<
