Installing express tools

Hi,

 

I would like to install the Autocad Express Tools on a computer with Autocad allready installed.

The problem is that the installer asks to insert a DVD which I don't have.

We got our Autodesk Design Suite on a USB stick but there isn't an option to choose between DVD and USB.

 

Is it possible to install the express tools with the USB?

Is there no option to browse to the file location?

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:

Hi Bob,

 

the dialog that shows up only gives 2 options.

I can either cancel the setup by pressing cancel or I can continue the setup by pressing OK (after I have inserted the DVD)

But since I don't have the DVD, I cannot complete the installation.

I didn't find a solution to install the express tools through the configuration panel but I installed them manually and they are working fine.

 

The only thing I had to do was copy the Express folder from the provided software to the installation directory of my AutoCAD Mechanical, then load the tools in with the command APPLOAD and selecting the .fas files and at last add the menu tab with the function CUILOAD and selecting the acetmain.cuix file.
