I read in the help that to run macros we need to type $run macro_name. This seems straightforward, only I don't know what the exact name of the macro is that I have downloaded. Specifically I want to use CamTime and FilletRad. I have installed the macros per instructions in the installer, but "$run CamTime" and "$run FilletRad" (without the quotes) give an error. I did find a sample macro, "testmain.vxm" and "$run testmain.vxm" seems to work.
Please help, I'm lost!

I am the author of those programs. First, the bad news - most of the programs available from the downloads library are not compatible with VX v12. They are being updated and will be available during the next few weeks. Good news is that CamTime has been updated - download from this post.
The programs add icons to User Toolbars, so you don't need to type anything, just select the toolbar for display from the User drop-down menu (to the right of the top VX toolbar, near Help). You can leave the User toolbar "floating" or you can dock it.

I double-clicked on the file in my d: emp directory, hit accept and install, made sure VX is not running and clicked OK. A cmd window popped up briefly. I went into VX, opened a part. I didn't see a user toolbar so I created one. Closed VX and tried the installer again. Still nothing. What am I doing wrong?

The winzip file must be extracted into your VX User Folder, the install will not work from any other folder. So, place the zip in your User Folder and then right-mouse click "extract to here". The file extracted has a VX icon and is called "VxDALAutoInstaller.exe". Double-left click on this to start the install process. Note that VX itself must not be running at the time.

This was the key. Managed to get a macro running succesfully now. Thanks Chris!
