5-phase annual daylight won't work with example files

#1

Hi,

i’m trying to run a 5-phase-simulation, starting with the examplefile 12_five_phase_II_gridbased.gh

If i use the 0.0.04 files from github with the latest installable version, also 0.0.04 (downloaded from food4rhino) everything seems fine, but after running the simulation i get an error “1. Solution exception:invalid literal for float(): FORMAT=ascii”

Found 6 opaque surfaces.
Found 2 fenestration surfaces.
Found 2 window-groups.
  [0] south_window, 2 states.
  [1] skylight, 1 state.

Can anybode give me an advise?

Best regards,

This has been discussed before. This is because of a change in Radiance file header. The issue has been addressed long time ago. Try this file to install the latest version.
