    Hi All,

    I just upgraded to ACAD2009 a few weeks back, after having happily and productively beeing using ACAD2008 for over a year or so.

    I have imported all my settings from ACAD2008, which includes network paths that reference locations for shared files on our server, by exporting my ACAD2008 profile as an "*.ARG" file. Since exporting your profile does not affect the PGP file, I had to then update ACAD2009's PGP manually, since I was not sure of compatibility of this file between the 2 versions.

    I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 (32bit) on a HP Compaq 8710W workstation laptop, with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Intel Processor, 2GB DDRII RAM and a 250GB HDD.

    I have only now started to need to use ACAD2009 since I am beginning a new project in the office.

    Now I am getting "UNKNOWN COMMAND" for every second command I try. Initially I thought it was just the RECTANG command, but the more I try clicking on all my toolbars, I find more and more commands that give me the same error.

    How do I resolve this, GLOBALLY?

    I have seen posts that refer to checking the MACRO command for that particular command is correct, but the commands that are giving me hassles all have the correct Macros in the CUI.

    So there is a definite discrepancy.

    I was also advised to try and reload the ACAD.lsp or ACAD2009.lsp file, which was claimed to reset this problem, but however, the "APPLOAD" command also gives me the same "UNKNOWN COMMAND" error.

    I have put off the idea of doing a complete reinstall of ACAD2009, since I believe it will not yield any results in this problem, judging by similar error messages in other posts.

    Can anyone please point out what can solve this.
