Autodesk..... Are you there?
It would be helpful if we could get some feedback and direction. It is very frustrating when one of the huge features of the software is unable to work properly. I think it shows a lot about the rest of the product as a whole lacking.
So I got this thing to work for QTO 2013 after much of the same frustrations as above. Here is what I did:
Pasted the above .dll's in the plugins folder. For the Timberline.dll
right clicked, select properties, in the properties window go to the security tab. (In my case I had three security groups or names, one of which was "Users" I noticed this group did not have full control.) To change this select edit and check full control in the appropiate box, select apply.
Now select the general tab.
At the very bottom under attributes there may be a button that says "unblock" select this and hit apply and OK to exit.
Do this same procedure to the Interop>PEDataObj.dll
This worked for me.
QTO 2013 is the last of its species, since "takeoff" has been moved to Navisworks. I've been involved with QTO for a long time and have a love, hate relationship with it. It had so much promise, but so little support. It just was lokign for the push that never came. From what I've seen in the Navis version, were back to square 1 or maybe before that.
Hope you get this thing working.
So I might have to go back on some of my comments from the post above. I just revisted Navis 2014,and the quantification features. A lot of the QTO fetures are there, just in different places,or require a different sequence. You can also load 2D DWF documents in an do a cross-check (this is a bit weird, it doesn't highlight, but erases)
Quirks or at leas I think they are quirky
Things I like
Overall if it gets developement attention it could be great.
