I just opened up Land Desktop and my pull down menus are missing, all that is showing is an autocad icon with Express drop down menu next to it. How do I get my menus back?

What is the name of your current 'main customization file'?

What is your current workspace?

Have you viewed or tried to edit the contents of this workspace? Maybe
the menus just need to be enabled.

The default 'main customization file' is 'land.cui'.
The default workspace is 'Land Desktop', and there should be at least
one more named 'Land Desktop Complete'.

If you have Civil Design and/or Survey, there might be additional
workspaces.

This is a major bug in the 2006 version, IMO. I've had numerous
customers with this same problem - land.cui just disappears for some
reason. You can either a) reload the land.cui (if you can find one) or
b) start the secondary installer (for instructions on that, let me know)
or c) totally reinstall....

Direct from Autodesk support:

The user wants to allow the secondary installer to re-run by deleting
these things.
1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R16.2\ACAD-4008:409
2. C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application
Data\Autodesk\Autodesk Land Desktop 2006
3. C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Autodesk\Autodesk
Land Desktop 2006

Then setting up the user with Local Admin privileges temporarily (for
the duration of the users first run of the application).
Remember to disable or stop any background applications especially
Antivirus.
Then re-launch from the Windows Desktop Icon. This will trigger the
secondary installer and rebuild the users Windows Profile and registry
entries for the product.
