Migrating old AutoCAD 12 MNU menus to AutoCAD 2008

Hi,

 

I am hoping someone can put me out my misery.

 

I am attempting to migrate/open/import an old AutoCAD12  MNU file in AutoCAD 2008.

 

Is this possible to do?

 

If so, how?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Bryan

A huge junp like that would be easier to customize your 2008 .CUI file

CUI command has a TRANFER tab.

Your current menu is on the left, open your MNU file on the right.

Drag and drop.

 

Save your current workspace when you are done. And do it again if you move things around.

 

Assuming your MNU does not need any additional support files or images etc that you might also have to move to R2008.

Hi,

 

Thanks for your response.

 

I have tried that and getting an error saying 'Unable to open file'

 

I think it might be better to start again.

 

Regards,

Bryan

Hi,

 

another approach would be to start command _MENULOAD, then search to your file (don't forget to change the file-extension in the filedialog to *.MNU) and load it. The conversion to CUI is done automatically.

 

>> error saying 'Unable to open file'

Does it say a little bit more than that? I guess there are more lines in the commandline you can show us to see the source of the problem.
