    Default 2018 express tools

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    having just been forced to update to 2018 i had to perform an update to install the express tools because my systems administrator did the instal in my absence. However although the update appears to have succeeded I can't frin any of the express tools in a toolbar, on the ribbon or by teyping express tools in the command line. Where can i access them?

    Your header says you are using LT. If you upgraded to 2018 LT, there are no Express Tools. LT has never had them.

    Who installed Express Tools?

    Was AutoCAD Electrical up and running at the time?

    2018 Electrical was up and running but had to be closed to do the install. I used the windows modify/uninstall application from the control panel to access the setup functions of AutoCAD 2018 and I got to install several of the PLC maufacters my systems administrator over looked plus some of the IEEE spectification and finally go to the screen where express tools had not been selected to be installed. I checked the box to select it and installed it with the other extras I had selected and assumed they would respond either by showing up on the ribbon or at least to either "express tools" or "express menu" at the command line but nothing I have tried has worked to make them show up.

    Could it be you did not log on as an administrator?

    my systems administrator filled in the admin password remotely
    is there a better way to update than using the windows control panel tool?
