I have loaded the Express Tools as here http://autocadtips.wordpress.com/2012/04/16/load-e
I am running on Windows 8, Autocad Student Version language Spanish.
Thanks in advance.
You should know that Win8 is not currently supported and can be troublesome for some users: for a final fix, you will need to wait for Autodesk to provide updates or patches or solutions.
If you type EXPRESSTOOLS (one word) at the command line, what does AutoCAD report?
You can try Windows search for Flatten.lsp , see which folder it stored in and check with the Support paths in Options of Autocad.
Even with Win7 or XP, autocad put the Express Folder in wrong place.
EXPRESSTOOLS either _EXPRESSTOOLS give the same result: Unknown command. I'm afraid i will have to wait for some service pack from Autodesk reviewing these issues... Many thanks anyway.
Only a week with Windows 8 and i'm beginning to feel the hate.
Looks like that is why, Flatten.lsp is not in EXPRESS Folder
Type in OPTIONS, add the path
Program files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2013
and restart autocad.
Sorry for the delay in my reply Patchy, i couldn't access to my PC till now.
I type OPTIONS (_OPTIONS for not english versions) and appears a menu in spanish that feels like chinese to me:
Could you tell me which one of these folders is the right one in your english version, and i'll try to translate that to mine, please?
Hi, first of all excuse my english, I´m from Guatemala and I'm going to try explain my self the best I can but I don´t really speak or write english.
I'm having the same problem right now and somthing happen to me, I solved the problem in one computer and doing the same in another one didn´t work, but maybe this helps you.
Loading "Express tools" in the menu bar is the first step, but now you have to load 2 files in the "Express" folder. Launch Autocad and write in the command line the command APPLOAD, in the following dialog box load the files acettest.fas and acetutil.fas in the Express folder. Then LOAD and CLOSE and that should do it. I hope that helps.
Pleas if someone could help me with thte problem I exprienced, in one computer the solution worked fine, but on the other one some express tools worked and some not, (example: EXTRIM worked, ARC ALIGNED don´t..."unknown command" appear).
Thanks, Kevin Santa Cruz
Hola Kevin. Tenemos el mismo problema de que algunos comandos funcionan y otros no, pero creo que tengo la solución, al menos a mi me funciona:
Ve a OPCIONES y en «Ruta de búsqueda de archivos de soporte» añade la ruta de la carpeta Express Tools. Reinicia AutoCAD y debería funcionar.
Mira el archivo que adjunto si tienes dudas.
Hi Kevin. We have the same isssue about some commands working and some don´t, but i think i have the sollution, works for me anyway.
Click OPTIONS and "Support File Search Path" add the Express Tools folder path. Reboot AutoCAD and it should be working fine.
