How can I load a cuix menu file?

Customized menus from autocad 2013 use the cuix suffix.
ProgeCAD will not allow the loading of these updated menus, only mnu files.

Dear progeCAD Customer,

you will be able to only import menus specifically defined for the progeCAD software, in a way to ensure all the contained commands to be recognized and executed as expected.
In particular, .cuix format menus won't be imported in progeCAD, not being recognized.

CUIx (customization files) is a new thing in AutoCAD 2010 replacing the CUI (legacy customization files).

The CUIX format is simply a compressed file. Open it with your favorite ZIP program to gain access to all of the individual CUI files inside. Export the desired CUI files.
You'll need to download the cuitomnu application to convert the CUI file to the MNU format. You can download the converter from the following link:
You'll have to load the vlx format application inside of AutoCAD to convert the file extension: Tools > Load Application...
After that you'll need to run the application typing cuitomnu in the command line, the dialog box will be displayed asking you to select the cui format file to convert it to the mnu format.

We look forward to receiving your feedback, and remain at your disposal, for further assistance, when needed. Please send it to the support@progecad.com email address. Thank you.

Best regards
