WindowsError when running UWG example file, LBT 1.6.0

Hi all,
I was trying to run the UWG example file in ladybug tools version 1.6.0 and am getting this error.
Looking at line 86 in I think it might be because somehow the new epw directory can’t be created.

Has anyone encountered this before, or knows how to solve it?
Thanks :slight_smile:

HI @erida.bendo ,

From what I can tell, this appears to be some restriction that IT or some antivirus software has placed on your machine. The issue is not happening with the writing of the simulation files but rather with the calling of the executable that is running the Urban Weather Generator. Are you able to get something like the following when you run the following from command line?

"C:\Program Files\ladybug_tools\python\python.exe" -m uwg --help

If not, you’ll likely need your IT department to greenlight the “C:\Program Files\ladybug_tools\python\python.exe” executable.

Hi @chris , thank you for the swift reply :slight_smile:
That must be it, I get the following when I run it in cmd

I will get in touch with IT, thanks a lot!
