About ARD Menus in Civil 3D/ACAD 2014
Posted by Shane O'Rorke on 13 August 2013 09:56 PM

In AutoCAD/Map/Civil 3D 2014, the way menus and programs are saved and loaded has changed.

During installation, menus are saved to the following location:

  • For ARD V14 on Civil 3D 2014:  
    • - Windows 7/8 - C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\ARDV14.bundle\Contents\Resources\ARDV14.cuix  
    • - Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\ARDV14.bundle\Contents\Resources\ARDV14.cuix
  • For ARD V14 on AutoCAD 2014 (which can be installed on any AutoCAD based platform):  
    • - Windows 7/8 - C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\ARDACADV14.bundle\Contents\Resources\ARDACADV14.cuix  
    • - Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\ARDACADV14.bundle\Contents\Resources\ARDACADV14.cuix

When you start your AutoCAD application, the menus are copied and loaded from the following location:

  • Windows 7/8: C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\C3D 2014\enu\Support
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<your name>\Application Data\Roaming\Autodesk\C3D 2014\enu\Support

For every new user, a copy of the menu should occur from the installation directory to your user profile support path directory.

Use the command cui to remove the menu from your workspaces.

If you need to remove the menu permenantly, do the following:- type cuiunload at the command line and remove the loaded ARD menu- delete the .cuix from your user path- delete the .cuix from the Program Files path
