This is caused by IC not being able to find the full sku (including 
options) in the products tables.  There's a few different things that 
can be responsible for this, check:

1.  Your variants table is defined as a products table in your 
catalog.cfg file.  Check that you have a line like this:
ProductFiles   products variants

2.  Your variants table is being populated.  Are you remembering to run 
"Create All Possible Combinations" from the options editor?

3.  Check that the code that is generated in the variants table matches 
the sku that IC looks for when you attempt to add the product to your 
shopping cart.  You can check the catalog level error.log file for the 
sku that IC is looking for.  Sometimes the order of the options will be 
different.  This is an issue that has been resolved in IC 5.6.

Yes, or at least several bugs have been fixed.

Sure, email me and I'll be glad to help, or you can jump into
