    Load up your installation DVD and you can install Express Tools. You must have forgotten to check it off during the first install of 2012.

    I had a few problems with the menus for Autocad a couple of custom ones and on one machine the normal acad menu didn't come up. I DID merge my 2011 settings. What I did was type.
    MENULOAD

    Unload EXPRESS
    then click browse, make sure the File Types are *.cuix
    then click on the EXPRESS.cuix
    go open
    go load
    then Close
    The Express tools should be there

    You may want to see if the file is there before you go ahead and unload things.

    This shows how to do it for AutoCAD Architecture but it is the same process for Vanilla AutoCAD

    Default Thanks Troggarf!

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    The instructions for adding express tools via the control panel uninstall utility worked great--and quickly!
