Having M-Color and AutoCAD installed, and installing a new AutoCAD version, the M-Color menu is not automatically added to the menu bar. Alternatively, M-Color menu does not automatically appear in AutoCAD menu bar after installing or upgrading M-Color.
M-Color is only impacted when using the AutoCAD Application.
M-Color works as expected. M-Color menu in AutoCAD fails to work and ??? or greyed out for the buttons. In AutoCAD when attempting to use the M-Files plug-in, the buttons do not work and have ??? or are greyed out.
This can occur when either of the AutoCAD or M-Files is updated.
Either they are missing files associated to menu items or the menu bar was not associated correctly when AutoCAD was installed/updated.
5 Solution / Workaround

If not, download the new M-Color installation package, uninstall and install M-Color again.
