Load the expresstools into AutoCAD... at teh command line, you should be able to type Expresstools and/or menuload the Expresstools menu. The command is txt2mtxt or something like that...

I think if you install the express tools from the CD you don't need to load any menus, the setup  progrm will do it for you.

If you do need to load the menu (if you don't have the pulldown menu) the file you'll be looking for when using the "MENULOAD" command would be "ACETMAIN.MNU". Here is the path to mine...your username will be different...

Once you load Express Tools, you can type

txt2mtxt  at the command line and you are on

Great command!
