Can you post the CUI file that is causing problems?
The 2006 files have a different format than 2005. While opening a 2006 file
in 2005 should not crash, we have discovered one situation that does result
in a crash. In the OPTIONS dialog, if you have a default template specified
on the AMreferences tab then you will likely crash when opening a 2006
file. What should happen is that when the 2006 file is opened a dialog
should appear indicating the file is saved in a newer format and all
For the case where commands stop working, do you use the right-click context
menus in the graphic area when you have geometry grip-selected? We've just
recently discovered a long-standing bug where doing a right-click in the
graphics window with geometry selected will eventually result in all
commands to stop functioning. Once this happens the only solution is to
quit and restart the program.

I forgot to mention another problem associated with the CUI files. When I close a drawing or shut down AutoCAD, the error message pops up. Usually four times for the first drawing and at least twice for each other drawing. It sure makes shutting down, a long stupid process.
What about the customization of the toolbars issue? All we are doing is adding and removing buttons to and from toolbars, which seems to work fine for a while, then we get the error message "The CUI file you are attempting to open is invalid. Select a different CUI file and try again." Once the message appears we are not longer able to customize. Reinstalling helps, but the same problem reoccurs. This issue has been brought up before in this string, but know one seems to know a solution, We need a patch now! We are getting ready to chunk this new reversion, and move on to something that has more support.
Can you zip up your CUI file and eMAIL it to us? Send it to
email@example.com. Also the error message you have attached is a generic
.NET error message. Can you give us some details on why you think that may
be a CUI error?
Thanks for working with us on this.

I started having this same problem all of a sudden today. The customize
user interface was working fine, I made some changes and they were saved to
the CUI file. The next time I tried to open the CUI dialog box it gave me
the invalid error message.
Now, no matter which CUI file I open, they are all blank. There are no menu
items, toolbars, shortcut menus etc.
There was a JIT error that popped up...I'll try to attach the text.
