MP,
I posted them in the lilly pond under /danny. You know, I could just create a reactor that will enter the (command "expresstools") into my startup suite.  If thats less of a burden.  Its not a mager problem, just one that got under my skin.

Guessing ...

Let me ask you this, is the pulldown for Express Tools the 6th or 7th menu item after the View pulldown menu counting accross (increasing to the right) by any chance?

For example:

File Edit View Menu1 Menu2 ... ExpressX

Where X is 6 or 7?

I've noticed if I create a new profile, under options, called "danny" and set that to current, the express pool down shows up.  But for some reason the "Architectural Desktop" is set curent every time AutoCAD is launched.  So I tried deleting "Architectural Desktop" from the profiles, and then renaming "danny"(this profile worked) to "Architectural Desktop". When I launch AutoCAD, still no Express pulldown.

That is because ADT uses the ARG file for the settings for the profile and will not allow you to use a different profile unless you change the shortcut to load the program. Also sometimes the double click settings to open an associated file type will point to the shortcut OR will have the arg setting in the file description for loading. It is not one of Autodesk's crowning acheivements....
