It would be difficult to answer this question without seeing your IDF file.

Output:IlluminanceMap only works with SplitFlux daylighting. When I changed it to that, I received an error:

CloseReportIllumMaps: Illuminance maps requested but no data ever reported. Likely cause is no solar.

Which you might want to look into. When I upgraded the file to 8.7, I got the same error.

Sorry, I cannot replicate the crash you saw.

Thanks for your replication, it's very useful.

  1. IDF file miss the RunPeriod Object, and I refreshed it.
  2. "SplitFlux" is chose, When I close "Output:IlluminanceMap", that's alright,
  3. When I turn on "Output:IlluminanceMap", E+ crashed again.
  4. I don't find the resolution for "No Solar".

Thanks again for your patience!
