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.
