You need to add more manufacturer catalog first.

Some steps from the help files below:


  1. Close all instances of AutoCAD Electrical.
  2. From the Windows Control Panel select Programs and Features.
  3. From the dialog box, select the latest version of AutoCAD Electrical and click the uninstall/change button.
  4. On the AutoCAD Electrical Installation Wizard, click Add or Remove Features.
  5. On the Add/Remove Features page, click Next.
  6. On the Manufacturer Content Selection page, select all the manufacturers you wish to install. Click Next.
  7. On the Select Symbol Libraries page, click Next.
  8. Click Next to continue.
