Autocad profile import export

Hi,
We are using autocad 2011 here and I have the following issue:
The Cad teamleader configures his workspace with Icons menus and so on. That takes ours to do and she would like to find a way to transfer that "workspace" to the other member of the group.
Under Start Autodesk there is a Migrate utility that works when she want to use another computer to work on, all is exportable and importable but that doesn't work with 2 differents username.

How can we transfer all the settings from one to the other?
tx!

unfortunately the migration of settings and workspaces within AutoCAD can become troublesome as there is no single file to copy from one computer to the next.

another thing to check is to make sure each workstation has the same applications (CUI files) running by running the command MENULOAD within AutoCAD. if there are any missing files on the second workstation that could cause some of the missing menu tabs

On the toolbar where you see File Edit...Help Express there should be other choices after "Express" and they don't shows up...

Yes. The Import and Export is exporting the profile of the current user. So instead of import and exporting the profile, you should save the workspace.

This is for 2006, but it should be the same process:

check that the correct user profile is being selected through the OPTIONS and that the correct workspace is loaded. It could be that the settings have all transferred over but it is still attempting to use the default profile and workspace

When I go to Customize User Inferface and look on the right side under MENUS under my main user I see after Express her stuff PEDT (Group: DESSIN) / blk (Group: DESSIN)  etc
But When I look at the same thing under my secondary user I see Unresolved 1 (Group: DESSIN)   ETC.... All 9 groups are there but showing as UNRESOLVED

silverkornCommented:
those groups would be unresolved because it is missing the CUI files associated with those custom menus and toolbars. running the MENULOAD command on both workstations should point you in the right direction as to what CUI files are missing

silverkornCommented:
if you go to the first workstation and run the CUI command within AutoCAD. at the very bottom of the "Customize User Interface" window is a heading call "Partial Customization Files", when you expand that select the DESSIN and on the right side under the heading of "properties" should list the full file name.

I got it!!! There is some kind of a mix it with the %username%\AppData folders Local and Roaming! The missing files where looked for by Autocad under Rooming but it was in fact located under Local! So I just moved it to Roaming and now the menus appears.
