How do I manually migrate AutoCAD LT 2006 settings into AutoCAD LT 2010?

When installing AutoCAD LT 2010 I chose to migrate settings from LT 2006. The settings were migrated and appeared on the first use of LT. The new ribbon menus were not used; instead, the old style toolbar icons were visible. Later the same day, double clicking on a file opened LT and all the settings had reverted to the 2010 style ribbons and the toolbar icons were gone. How do I get these settings back?

From the Autodesk site:

In 2010, hit F1 and look up CUIs and Migrating from Earlier Versions of AutoCAD. If you have done so already according to the instructions, then it may be a case where your toolbars are there, but you have to go into the CUI to find them and then to assign them to whichever workspace you wish to use.

Solution: Type cui in the command line and press Enter. The "Custom User Interface" (CUI) window appears. Under "Customizations in All Files" window, right click on AutoCAD LT Classic and click onSet Current from the popup menu. Click on Apply and close the CUI window. There should now be toolbars similar to legacy versions. Move the toolbars to the desired locations. For more toolbars, right click on the blank space at the top or end of the toolbar to access a popup menu of toolbars. From this menu, if not already checked, click on Workspaces to make this toolbar visible. Click on the Workspaces toolbar's down arrow and click on Save Current As... and name the workspace. This makes the new workspace current. Click on the Workspaces toolbar's down arrow and click on Customize... to open the CUI window. Right click on the new workspace you just created and select Set Default to make the new workspace the default workspace. Click on Apply and close the window. Your workspace has now been customized, made current and is now the default workspace when starting AutoCAD.
