Moving from Autocad - Main User Interface Customization file not found

Hey all,

I'm moving from Autocad, and had downloaded the demo of Bricksys, in which all went well.  Now, after purchasing a license, I've re-downloaded the application, and when I launch I get the error - "Main User Interface Customization file not found", and when I get into the app, there are no menus at the top or side.  Any ideas what may be going on?  Not a great way to encourage people who are thinking of switching from Autocad.  Thanks for any insight anyone can provide.




  • Looks like BricsCAD can't find your custom main cui file. have you changed the name of the file or folder recently? Perhaps 'C:\ASOF BRICV14' has been renamed to 'C:\ASOF BRICV16' ?

    The fix is in the error message. Run MENU, then browse to the location of your main cui.

    I have a question regarding to this topic.
    I also get the same error message.

    I start BricsCAD using a /P profile.arg file where I define the MAIN.cui file.
    Here is how it looks like in my .arg file:

    "SRCHPATH"=".;%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Bricsys\BricsCAD\V16\en_US\Support\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Bricsys\BricsCAD V16 en_US\Support\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Bricsys\BricsCAD V16 en_US\Fonts\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Bricsys\BricsCAD V16 en_US\Help\en_US\"

    I have that .cui file placed in %appdata% and BricsCAD do load this menu BUT it still displays the error message.
    I just click OK on the error message and I can see that my .cui is loaded correctly.

    I test that by typing in MENUNAME and it gives back the correct path and .cui.

    What am I doing wrong? How can I avoid that message box? Is it somewhere in the registry that tells BricsCAD where to look for the file or?

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
