Express Tools not loading properly in AutoCAD 2014

Initially we got an error message stating: "error: no function definition: VLAX-USER-PRODUCT-KEY"


We did some trouble shooting ourselves with information obtained via several web searches, involvding the following:


1) Adding .fas files from the Express directory to the appload.

2) Reloading the acetmain.cuix via menuload (had to unload it first, since it was apparently already loaded)

3) Removing and re-adding Express Tools via Programs & Features (Add/Remove programs)

4) Reinstalling AutoCAD 2014

5) Running (vl-load-com) from the command line (no effect)

6) Running expressmenu and expresstools from the commandline (says it's successful)...


...then we are now getting "error: no function definition: VLAX-MACHINE-PRODUCT-KEY"


The registry keys appear to be OK, and I am seriously at the end of my tether. I have pretty much tried everything I could find to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.


Additional information (system specifications):


Windows 7 64-bit

Intel Core i7 960 3.2 GHz

Nvidia Quadro FX 380 512MB 64-bit


AutoCAD 2014 64-bit

try to reset your AutoCAD profile (to be found in the startmenu of Windows) so your user-settings get reseted (or login to your Windows with another user-account) and try to start AutoCAD there. ...same problem?
