KG'sother AutoCAD question of the day
Express tools - using 2006 at work but got no Express tools, tried reinstalling it from the HD, but no Express tool - can't do it from the disc because it's a DVD and this box only has a CD drive.

btw - i'm not a AutoCAD guru, just a pretty good drafter.

1. It may actually be installed.
on the command prompt type in "expressmenu"

Command: EXPRESSMENU
Perform a full rebuild of the Express Tools menu before loading it? : Enter Yes or No

See if that works.

Where to Find AutoCAD Express Tools Volumes 1-9


AutoCAD Express Tools Volumes 1-9 contain a library of productivity tools designed to help you extend the power of AutoCAD. They are easy to use, easily integrated into your menus and toolbars, and cover a wide range of AutoCAD functions (including layer management, dimensioning, drawing, object selection, and object modification).

You can install AutoCAD Express Tools Volumes 1-9 as part of the AutoCAD installation. You no longer need to install the tools separately. In the AutoCAD Installation wizard, on the Install Optional Tools page, select the Install Express Tools option.

Note Express Tools are available in their original form, in English only, and are not supported. No updates have been made to the tools. Double-byte characters are not supported.

5. Can you share the DVD drive on another machine and run it from
there? Or just copy the files to your local box?

7. OK, found out how its done
CONTROL PANEL>ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS>AUOTCAD --there's a button that says 'CHANGE' - cloincking on that brings up a dialogue box where you can make some changes.
