    Question AutoCAD 2006 - Set custom profile current, disables access to ACAD Help file

    This problem could have been posted in the AutoCAD Customization Forum, but I suspect the association of ACAD Profiles with apriori ACAD 06 menus & ACAD 06 .cui files are inexorably linked: I finally created a .cui file that contains all of my custom .mns toolbar customizations that contains a workspace for my 3D work (done thru Transfer Tab of CUI & alot of sequential steps I've lost track of!). I also have successfully created an associated Profile that besides storing certain Options Dialog Box settings, also stores Dialog Box sizes for various commands like: Layer...,Block...,Insert...,Rename...,View...,XREF..., etc.(very useful) and saves my prefered color for Command Line background. But when I set this profile current, I lose access to the ACAD Help system! I get the message: Cannot find help file: acad.chm.
    The Help Folder under Program Files > ACAD 06 contains the identical name & number of files wheather or not this profile is set current.

    How can I kill this bug?

    Have you verified that the Support Path for your new profile contains your help directory?

    There is no acad.chm. In 2006 it is acad162.chm and in 2007 it is acad170.chm. I create profiles from scratch with each new version because it's easier than fixing all the problems you're gonna have with an imported one. Expecilly upgrading to 2006 with the CUI.
