AutoCAD 2011 MEP Express tools

Hi all...
I recently upgraded to MEP 2011. I cannot get express tools to work. I have them pathed to the express folder, and loaded the acetmain.cuix with MENULOAD. I have typed "EXPRESSTOOLS" and "EXPRESSMENU". Both state they have loaded successfully. However, when I try to use any express tools command i get the message "Unknown Command"
Any idea's???
Thanks!

I had to Add/Remove Programs to install it from the disk. Then, I simply went into CUI and added Express to my current workspace menu. I did not have to path any folders or specifically load anything with MENULOAD. It works OK for me. Do you have the folder called Express in your AMEP 2011 folder?

Hi
If you have load the express tool menu.
I think you have to customize your workspace (command: CUI) to confirm the express tools checked for the ribbon in this workspace.
see the attachment.
