I recently downloaded 2 of the new apps. When using the standard autocad profile they showup in the plug-ins ribbon tab with out a problem. When using our custom profile that we have the only way i can get them on the ribbin is in 2 separate addins tabs and the plugin tab doesn't even show up even though I have it set to showup in the workspace.
Does any have any ideas on how to get these added in correctly?

Solved! by pendean. See the answer in context.
As a suggestion, in the download page of the add-in you will find the customer support email address in case you need assistance.
You could give it a try and contact the developer of the add-in to see if this is a known issue or if they can help you.
If this is happening with add-ins developed by different companies then let us know what you have changed in your custom profile.

I installed the add-ons in the out of the box default profile which would then make them Partial Cui's for Acad.cuix and it added them into the plug-ins tab. I then took our corporate Cuix file which has Acad.cuix loaded as a partial and added the the plug-ins tab to our ribbon workspace. This tab wouldn't even showup in autocad when I reloaded the workspace. Although now having typed all this out I think I see what you mean. I can't use a a partially loaded cuix from a partially loaded cuix. SO I would have to partial load the add-in cuix files into my Corporate cuix for it to work.
I recently installed the AutoCAD Architecture 2013.
Have installed all the FREE Apps without any issues. They all installed within the Plug-ins TAB.
However, I still have AutoCAD Architecture 2012 installed and all the Apps installed there also but each one has it's own Add-ins TAB. (Most of these Apps had been previously installed from the Autodesk Labs Plug-in of the month and I wonder if I am now loading them twice.)
Have attempted the CUI and changed all to MERGE TAB etc...
Have unloaded the individual cuix, have removed the path in OPTIONS but all keep coming back.
Also, when I close AutoCAD Architecture 2012 I receive now 2 error beeps. (Still working on that one.)
Closing AutoCAD Architecture 2013 has no issues.
In my opinion, the Apps should give you an option in which version of AutoCAD... you wish to install to.
My preference would be to have the Apps installed with the 2013 version.
My 2012 version was working perfectly before the installation of the Apps.
