When attempting to run the Structural Quantity Spreadsheet tool I am getting this message: "Microsoft Excel is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action". The report is never generated. This happens even with the out of the box configuration.
And if I close Excel, I get this error:
This issue might occur when I have both AECOsim Building Designer V8i and OpenBuildings Designer Connect Edition installed on the same machine.
Steps to Accomplish
1. First, try a modify/repair of OpenBuildings Designer from Apps & features and after that restart OpenBuildings Designer and try the Structural Quantity Spreadsheet tool again.
2. If this doesn’t help, you may need to uninstall AECOsim Building Designer V8i from your machine. After this you should be able to successfully generate the Structural Spreadsheet Report from OpenBuildings Designer.
