Migrate Custom Settings -problem

After installation of AutoCAD 2005 as an upgrade (from AutoCAD 2002) I can not run Migrate Custom Settings utility. The message box displayed is: "Migrate Profiles requires that AutoCAD 2000 or a later version be installed on your system" with OK button. There is still AutoCAD 2002 installed, I can run the program. Did somebody encounter same problem? Where to look for solution? Thanks in advance,

I had problems migrating profiles from 2002/2004 to 2005. Silly things like "can't find the help file" and the like! In the end it was much less trouble to start from scratch and create new profiles in 2005.

Hello, Can you tell me what version of 2002 you have? Is it AutoCAD 2002 and AutoCAD 2005 or something like AutoCAD ADT 2002 and AutoCAD 2005? The Migration Wizard is looking at the product ID to decide if you have a like product on your system. When they don't match up it won't migrate anything. Hope this helps.

I had problems migrating from 2000i to 2005. My design center kept looking to 2000i for certain DLL files etc, and would not open. Decided not to use the migration tools when upgrading the other office workstations.

I have been having similar problems. We are running 2000i and have crossgrades for MECH 2005. I have yet to see the "Migrate Custom Settings" program upon first run of new MECH 2005. I have found the "ADMigrator.exe" file, but when I try to run it manually it give me the same message you have received...
Also, from our understanding, the new install should be "side-by-side" with ACAD 2000i. When I "Activate" the new MECH 2005, 2000i is no longer usable??? This causes a problem since we are running another piece of software that, until it gets upgraded, needs ACAD 2000i to run...

Any help is GREATLY appreciated...
