I am using EP version 8.4.0, OS 1.10.0 on Windows 10 operating system. When i try to run the simulation with the Radiance measure it terminates.The stdout file looks like this:

The simulatiom was run on a basic one story model with 4 spaces and a thermal zone for each one, using ideal air loads. The used daylighting simulating tools were ann illuminance map and a daylighting controle point.

Could this be because i am using windows 10?

While untested on Windows 10, I doubt that's the problem here. Double-check that the illuminance maps and daylight control points you've placed in your model are actually hooked up to thermal zones. The best place to do this is in the SketchUp plugin, rather than the app. See the image below, which shows a single zone model with a daylighting control and illuminance map assigned to it, in the plugin's inspector:

If your model still fails, send me a link to download your model's run directory and I'll have a look-see.

Thank you for your answer, but unfortunately the problem is still the same. My daylighting object were already assigned to the thermal zones. I also tryed with the new Radiance measure you suggested but the problem is the same.

Here is the link to the run directory.

Thank you for your help.

It appears there is still something amiss in this particular model. Could you please send a link to the osm? I also recommend updating to 1.10.4 and getting the Radiance measure update posted in the link in my first comment here. But first things first, send us a link to your model, thanks.

OK...i have update OS to the 1.10.4 version. The problems are a little bit different (with the OS Radiance measure the simulation terminates earlier than the MY Radiance measure) now, but the Radiance simulations still does not work. Here is the link to the documentes and to the osm file.

Again, thank you for your help.
