I have been getting questions related to the installation of the Express Tools in the 2006 products, well actually the lack of installation of the Express Tools Menu.
It does load automatically with the 2006 products but you may have to Load the CUI to get it to work. Here’s how…
Just try typing in EXPRESSTOOLS at the command line.
If the Express Tools menu still is not available on your pulldown or the toolbars are not to be found type in:
Custom User Interface Load is a new function that replaces the MENULOAD command. In fact if you type MENULOAD it does a CUILOAD. Same dialog box.
The dialog box shows you the currently loaded functions, in my case ACAD and CUSTOM
Click the Browse button and select a file calles “acetmain.cui”. This is the Express Tools CUI file (ACad Express Tools MAIN.cui). It should be under your Support folder. Click OK to accept. Now the Express Tools menu file should appear in under File Name. Not done yet…
Next click the Load button and the Express Tools should be on your pull down and the Toolbars should be available. It will also be listed in the Loaded Groups area also.
Now – Close the dialog box and get back to work
