Don't laugh but I've installed ADT3.3 along with express tools on a vista machine but when I run the program the express tools won't load. Is there anyone out there who can help out a poor teacher?

If it installed, but the menu and commands don't work, try typing
EXPRESSTOOLS from the command line. If the menu doesn't show up, but the
commands work, try typing EXPRESSMENU from the command line.

This is due to Express tools bug and Vista Feature :smileyhappy: . Please mark the
AutoCAD as "Run this program as an administrator"

1. Right click on the AutoCAD icon /link. This shows the "AutoCAD 2008
Properties" This shows the properties dialog
2. In this dialog select Compatibility tab
3. Check the check box in Priviledge Level to run acad as admin.
