Oops Jason already posted my last tip on his blog last year, and I’m even subscribed to his blog…oh well. Maybe this will help raise the awareness of QTO.

So far I’ve found Jason’s blog:

last and never least…

AUGI Quantity Takeoff Forum

Anyone else have any good QTO resources?

Autodesk Quantity Takeoff and Windows 7

In Windows 7 you will receive the following error when attempting to open a file in QTO


Fortunately Autodesk support was extremely fast to respond (3 hours) with this solution:

The ADOX file is a file required for VBA applications that the 2010 QTO installer does not install into Windows 7. A manual copy of the Vista version of this file into the program should correct this issue. You will need Administrator rights to perform this operation. Here is a process for you to try:

Copy and install the ADOX file:

1.) Close Quantity Takeoff.

2.) Locate the following path\file on the install DVD: \x86\Autodesk\QTO\Vista\ADOX.DLL

3.) Copy the ADOX.DLL file to the installed QTO directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\Autodesk Quantity Takeoff 2010\

4.) Restart QTO.

5.) Open a new or existing project.
