This is Mayur..i am using AutoCAD Mechanical 2010.
When I start AutoCAD the above mention error appears on the ribbon.
In my pc AutoCAD is installed in Administrator account and i m using it in a guest account.
The error is appering only in my account and not in Administrator account.
My account does not have administrator rights.
Easiest possible solution first, if you expand that button in the lower right with the little gear icon do you have options for Mechanical, Structure, and Mechanical Classic? If you do, select Mechanical and you should see the ribbon as expected.
If that doesn't fix the problem, type the command CUILOAD at the commandline and see what the list of Loaded Customization Groups says, it should say something like AMACAD, AMPP, AUTODESKSEEK and VAULT (if that's installed).
Does that do it for you? Even without Admin rights this should work. If this still doesn't work, did you migrate your settings from an earlier release?

Thanks for Ur reply. In my case i don't see any option like Mechanical, Structural or Mechanical classic in the workspace switching icon.
Also when I run CUILOAD command the list show only VAULT in loaded customization group.
Also i never did any thing like migrate setting from earlier release.
As I already said the AutoCAD is working fine in administrator login. If there is some other solution please tell me.
Thanks and regards,
Thanks for ur contribution. I didn't understand the language, and what i understood from the images I tried that and that didn't worked.
Thanks and regards,
Please try this:
1. CUIUNLOAD > Select Vault in the list and Unload > Close
2. CUILOAD > (the list should be completely empty now) > Browse... > This should open to the following folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\<your username>\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD Mechanical 2010\R18.0\enu\Acadm
3. Select acadm.cuix > Open > Load > Close
4. Now expand the little gear icon in the lower right and select Mechanical > The ribbon should appear
NOTE: If step 2 doesn't go directly to that folder, you may need to browse to that folder, and if that's the case you may need to turn on "show hidden files/folders" in Windows Explorer to get there.
If this doesn't work or if that folder doesn't exist you may have had a problem with the install. Even though you don't have Admin rights, you should get these files installed correctly into your profile when you go to launch the product the first time.
As I said solution you suggested worked for me.... But I am facing a new problem,
Now I have to follow the procedure u mentioned everyday to make the ribbon work properly.
Also the Mechanical option that u have mentioned is not appearing in the gear Icon in the bottom right corner.
Is there any permanent solution to this?
